South American skullcap, Scutellaria racemosa

I first saw these little flowers while I was putzing around Georgia roadsides, waiting for their botanical gardens to open. What could they be? I was really having trouble until I noticed the caps on the calyxes. A skullcap, tiny and pink as they may be. Remember the caps on yesterday's bigger bluer one? This one is now occasional in AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, and TX. Clarke Co GA, 7/7/18.
