Monarda, commonly known as Bee balm or Bergamot, produce bold spicy scented flowers from June through to September. Historically they have been used in various forms for their fragrance and even as spices for food! Much loved by bees and other nectar loving insects they bring a lovely splash of colour into any garden display as well as their unusual distinctive perfumes. This variety flowers a bold shade of red and looks particularly lovely in a border or pots on your patio and they will happily grow in shade or semi shaded areas where other plants might struggle. Hardy 5cm module grown plants supplied.
