Botany picture #82: Scutellaria orientalis
Scutellaria orientalis (Lamiaceae), Botanic Garden of Halle, Germany, 2008. An Asian species of this large, distinctive and cosmopolitan genus. Unfortunately, I hear that the city of Halle and also its botanical institute have suffered significantly from the recent floods in central Europe.
