Is it common to all Monarda's to have a smaller bloom coming from the center of a blossom? I had a Bee Balm that sometimes had these double decker flowers but I don't know the name of it. My Blue Stocking doesn't seem to have this happen and I was hoping that the occurrence of the double decker blossom might help me to identify it. Any guesses?

I'm not sure but I think that's a common growth habit sometimes. Check out these photos from our database:

Thank you, Lin. I really like this growth pattern on the Monardas. These are great photos. I'm thinking that it might have been a Jacob Cline...the name sounds familiar.
