Plant Details

A beautiful old variety of Monarda with masses of rose pink flowers from July to September.

Perfect for attracting bees all summer long into autumn.

Monardas are from North America in the 16th Century and are named after Nicholas Monardes, a Spaniard who discovered it. The whole plant smells of bergamot, the fragrance of Earl Grey tea and has good bushy upright habit. 

Mop shaped flowers appear over a long season in mid to late summer and are loved by bees and butterflies.

Height and spread: 60cm x 45cm

Common name(s): Bergamot; Bee Balm; Horsemint; Oswego Tea.

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
