Monarda General Information:

Although many Monardas are grown for their stature, these new shorter versions widen the selection of this garden standard. Strong grower in the North, can be overpowering in Southern gardens. Erect stems support uniquely shaped flowers. When crushed the foliage will release a spicy fragrance and the leaves can be used to make delightful teas.

Monarda Plant Care:

Prefers moist, compost-rich soil. Divide spring or fall every 3-4 years. Thinning stems out to increase air circulation will help prevent powdery mildew, as will keeping plants watered during dry spells. Foliage can be cut back after flowering to encourage fresh new leaves.
