Plant Description

Wild bergamot is found naturally in dry to moist, open slopes and meadows of the southern Appalachians and less frequently in the piedmont and coastal plain. It has pinkish-lavender, pompom shaped flowers on stems up to 40” tall all summer. ‘Claire Grace’ is a variety discovered in Mississippi that is very resistant to powdery mildew which can be a bane to all monardas. Sporting soft lavender flowers, and having a sturdy, upright habit, 'Claire Grace' should thrive, disease free, if planted in full sun and average to moist soil with good air circulation. It would look great in a wild garden or naturalized area where it will form slowly expanding clumps.
