Scutellaria lateriflora is commonly used in traditional herbal medicine. Extracts from the plant, usually teas, are used as a mild sedative for anxiety and to promote sleep. USDA hardiness zones 2b through 7b. 

Scutellaria lateriflora seeds require a period of cold stratification in order to germinate reliably. Place seeds inside a sealed air-tight plastic bag with a small amount of moist, but not wet, sterile perlite, sand, or vermiculite. Leave the bag in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 days prior to planting. After cold stratification, place the seeds on the surface of a well draining potting soil mix and cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist, but not soaking wet, and keep around 70°F to 75°F for best results. Germination typically takes 1 to 3 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
