Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Scutellaria incana Biehler
Plants with leaves more oblong and glabrous beneath except along the veins, have been called var. punctata (Chapman) Mohr. The validity and status of subspecific taxa in Virginia have not yet been evaluated. This species has an unusual Virginia range, with most of the state's populations concentrated in six southern Piedmont counties.
Moderately to very rich, well-drained floodplain forests, forested ravines, and stream-fronting slopes; often, but not always, in soils weathered from mafic and calcareous rocks; strictly associated with calcareous shell deposits in the Coastal Plain. Rare, sw. mountains (Lee County), sc. Piedmont (6 counties), and c. Coastal Plain (James City County).
