Noted for its fragrance, this unusual and aromatic wildflower is a common inhabitant of sunny fields and woodland border areas.
Forming attractive clumps, the bright lavender flowers of Bergamot (also known as Bee Balm) are produced in clusters and attract
lots of butterflies, bees and hummingbirds! Its strong stems are sometimes used by Indigo Buntings to build nests. The flowers of
Monarda fistulosa are excellent for fresh cut bouquets and its button-like seed heads are popular in dried flower arrangements.
The leaves of Bergamot also make a great minty tea.
Attracts Butterflies, Honeybees & Songbirds!
