Project Data     (Last Modified On 6/3/2011)
Contributor Text: I.C. Hedge & A. Paton
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: April-August.
Type: Type: [C] Nepal: Tombu Cana, [Buchanan-] Hamilton (K).
Distribution: Distribution: Kashmir, N.W. India, Nepal.
Comment/Acknowledgements: Characteristic features are the scrambling habit, the acutely quadrangular stems, the large corollas and the prominently tuberculate nutlets with a median band. It has a superficial resemblance to Scutellaria repens, but there are clear differences in corolla size (larger in Scutellaria scandens) and in nutlet indumentum (smooth and with hairs in Scutellaria repens).
