Help me identify this wildflower

Zone Williamsburg, VA | emigodwin added on May 8, 2019 | Answered

I am trying to identify this wildflower/weed growing in my garden in Williamsburg, VA. It grows next to a path, not in a flower bed or border and it doesn't look like any of the plants I have planted. The garden is only 2 years old and we are the first owners of the house. The plant is rather short (barely 5 in tall) and I have not seen any pollinators or other insects on it. Thank you for your help.

Probably a Scutellaria, which is in the mint family. It is certainly something in the mint family, though.
