Skullcap (Scutellaria galericulata)

The skullcap is one of the mint (Lamiaceae) family. The flower of the skullcap runs from pale to bright bluish-lavender. The small showy flower has two lips forming the corolla with the calyx having a prominent bump on the upper side; the overall effect is a little helmet like skull cap. The flowers, sometimes more than one, are to be found in the axils of the leaves.
