Unlike the other species in the same genus, Scutellaria
stringillosa, a perennial of 10-40cm tall, occurs in sandy
soil on seashores or close to them, propagating itself by extending
slender rhizomes. Stems and leaves are with pubescent hairs. Leaves
are of opposite phyllotaxis, 1.5-3.5cm long, 1-1.5cm wide, in the
shape of an oblong, with tips round, serrations obtuse on margins.
Axils on the upper parts set two of each blue-purple labiate flower
to bloom facing the same direction. Corollas, 2-2.2cm in length,
abruptly bend to stand erect. Bloom time: June-September.
