Scarlet Pollinator Magnet
The Monarda ‘Gardenview Scarlet’, Monarda didyma, also known as Bee Balm, Bergamont, Horsemint, Oswego Tea, is a clump-forming perennial that has tubular, two-lipped, red rose flowers with dark green aromatic foliage.
Monarda needs to be planted in full sun, but will tolerate afternoon shade. If deadheaded, (remove old flowers from plant) longer bloom times will be encouraged.
‘Grandview Scarlet’ is best grown in rich soil in a well-drained area, not being allowed to dry out. The leaves of Monarda can be used for teas and in salads.
Attracting hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, particularly when massed, Monarda provides color and contrast for the perennial border, wild garden, meadow, and herb garden or along ponds or streams.
