Common Name: Bee Balm, Bergamot

Very large, bright red florets appear in tight clusters atop stocky, square stems from midsummer to fall. This variety is one of the most mildew resistant as reported throughout the United States. It was discovered in Georgia and introduced into the trade by Saul Nursery.

Monarda is native to eastern North America, so it is easy to grow and it multiplies quickly. The flowers' sweet nectar attracts scores of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden. The aromatic foliage smells like mint when crushed and is often used to flavor teas.
