Horsemint (Monarda bradburiana), native to the south central United States, is best grown in part sun. Unlike most Monardas, it seems to prefer medium to dry soil. Monarda bradburiana has special value to native bees and bumble bees and, like other Monarda, is attractive to hummingbirds. M. bradburiana also reportedly has some mildew resistance.
