Description

Monarda fistulosa, common name Wild Bergamot, Grows easily in dry to medium moisture, well drained soils in full sun to part shade. Wild Bergamot is a common American native occurring naturally in prairies, dry open woods and roadsides. Bergamot is a member of the mint family, forming clumps that typically grow 3-4″ tall and 3′ wide. Two lipped, lavender, tubular flowers appear in dense globes on square stemmed terminals. The leaves are aromatic and have long been used as a tea substitute. They have a long summer blooming season and are highly attractive to bees and butterflies. Provide plenty of air space to prevent powdery mildew, an issue for most monardas. Use as a tall perennial in a border or use in an herb garden.
