Monarda fistulosa P-2-4’

Wildflower native to much of North America, magnet to butterflies and hummingbirds and native bees. Soft lavender flowers are fragrant and a delightful garnish to salads and fruits. Minty foliage often used in tea blends. Grow in full and part sun. Spreads readily in moist soil. Zones 3-9.

 Planting Directions: Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks prior  to transplanting outdoors. Seed starting medium should be kept at 60-70˚. Sow seed 1/8” to ¼” deep. Sow seed outdoors after all danger of frost has past and soil temperature is 60-70˚, thinning when plants are 2-4” tall.  Space plants 6-10” apart. Bergamot requires high soil fertility and ample moisture. It does spread my means of runners, plant in areas where this is not a problem. Bergamot tends to wander if not fertilized every spring.
