Product Description

MONARDA: Very attractive to butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. When crushed, the foliage will release a spicy fragrance and the leaves can be used to make a delightful herbal tea. Monarda is a North American genus of several species, all of which share tartly fragrant foliage and the square stems that typify the members of the Mint family. The late-summer flower heads are hemispheres of tubular blooms in brilliant colors. Plants thrive in full sun or partial shade and evenly moist soil. Under these conditions, they are vigorous to the point of invasiveness, perhaps past it. Hummingbirds are drawn to the flowers, which may suggest a location near a porch or a window. Petite Delight was the first dwarf monarda with mildew resistant foliage to be introduced to the trade. Lavender-rose flowers top the stout, square stems of this monarda from midsummer to early fall. They are enhanced by the lush dark green, crinkled foliage which forms a compact mound. 'Petite Delight' PP10784 was selected from the Chicago Botanic Garden's Plant Evaluation Program as an outstanding perennial for Midwest gardens. 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.
