Scutellaria ¿ species ?

Dear friends, please help with ID.
… at facebook helped with suggesting the genus Scutellaria
This plant is a small herb found growing under cover of cardamom plants; just about a foot high, sometimes growing a tall panicle as shown in pictures below.
The flowers measure about max 10mm across.
This place is Gudampara near Chinnakanal, Munnar, elevation about 1500m asl. … the towering panicle, seen in some of the plants       Habitat … hoping to show the plant in scale to other plants around it 


Scutellaria violacea


Thank you very very much … for the ID.

I had thought of S. violacea, but was not at all confident – too many different photos are floating on the internet!

Request for ID. This herb photographed at Munnar..


This one seems to be Ocimum gratissimum or O. basilicum


The plant rather reminds me of some species of Impatiens


it is certainly not Ocimum gratissimum nor O. basilicum. but cant say which plant it is.


There is a match of Scutellaria sp?


Looks like Scutellaria sp.


I hope this plant is Scutellaria discolor  var. discolor . Please see in the detailed description of this plant from “The eFlora of China” {link provided below}.
I think it should be Scutellaria violacea B.Heyne ex Benth. as per images herein.

LocationNuwakot , Nepal
Altitude:  3200 ft.
Date: 25 April 2015

Nepali Names: सेतो चारपाते Seto Chaarapaate 
One confusion flowering time is not matching according to Flowers of India  and Annotated Checklist of flowering Plants of Nepal .


Did not find any match to the listed. Only it looks nearer based on altitude but flowering period differ. However, flowering period gradually becoming early than the  recorded .
