    the leaf on the one I found is different. Also looked at Hyssop Skullcap, think no there too.

    Unfortunately, there’s no pics of the leaf…
    After trying to guess the plants that people post for identification, we get an idea of the kind of pictures needed…

    Here’s a plant I posted on another forum last week:

    Can you post some additional pics? a link to your photobucket would work for me…

    No photobucket account, sorry. These were the best photos that I had. May go back that way in a day or two. Thanks for your help

    It’s a Hyssop Skullcap. I have pictures of them in my photo collection. The yellow center is what I recognized.

    It’s a Hyssop Skullcap. The yellow center and shape are what I see. Light Blue? I have photos in my file.

    I say it’s a Hyssop Skullcap. The one I have photoed is a soft blue with the yellow center stripes.
