Plant Description

Monardas are plants belonging to the mint family. As such, they have square stems, aromatic foliage and characteristic, showy, unusual flower heads which often form tiers of more or less globose (rounded) flower clusters around the stems. They are widely spreading clump formers - meaning that in good soil, expect your clump to take off! They all prefer full sun and average to moist soil. The flowers of Monarda clinopodia are white with purple spots on the lower lip subtended by white to pinkish bracts, and they flower in early to midsummer. Grows to 31/2 feet high. Prefers a little shade.
