Monarda Panorama 'Red Shades'
Both the flowers and the foliage are fragrant!
Nothing brings in the butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees like Monarda, and these bright flowers bloom profusely in midsummer on vigorous, bushy 2- to 4-foot plants. The heavenly fragrance will keep you out in the garden to enjoy all the wildlife, too!
Best in consistently moist soil receiving full sun or afternoon shade, this Bee Balm is a trouble-free joy for garden and vase. Resist the temptation to crowd plants too closely -- they will spread of their own accord soon enough! An excellent cut flower, they are also a great choice for Northern gardens. Pkt is 50 seeds.
