Spotted Bee BalmMonarda punctata 2-4' tall. Also called Dotted Horsemint. Peculiar fragrant double-decker blossoms display multiple colors of pinkish-purple, greenish-beige and maroon, embellished with tiny burgundy spots. The actual flower heads are relatively small but stacked up on the stem and held by bracts that resemble petals.
One of the best hummingbird magnets nature has to offer! Wild and wily flowers form with tubular petals on pincushion heads borne above colorful bracts in July and August. Aromatic foliage. Good for borders, for wet areas and for cutting.
Native to the eastern U.S., from Vermont south to Florida and west into Texas. Drought tolerant, but blooms better with consistently moist soil. Plant 16-20" apart in full to part sun in sandy soil. Z3. Maine Grown. (bare-root crowns)
