Beebalm (Monarda didyma 'Marshall's Delight')

This monarda is a garden favorite. It attracts all sorts of bees and butterflies and other insects. Hummingbirds love it too. Full photo to follow.

Super banner Leon!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Wonderful and beautiful banner Leon. Thank you for posting the two pics.

Too bad for me that this variety can't be grown in containers.

@greenappleagnes Just a short personal note to thank you for your enthusiasm, love of gardening and active participation. But most of all for your positive outlook, inspiration and talent. That means a lot to all of us in this forum (+Irises too)!
Thank You!

Thank you @TBGDN! That's means a lot coming from you. I look forward to reading your posts. They're always thoughtful and insightful, and I feel like I learn something new from you every day. Smiling

Still not sure how I got here but so happy I found the site banner forum. When I started gardening, I was touched by the generosity of gardeners. Their enthusiasm and willingness to share experiences, knowledge and, of course, plants was refreshing. I came from another creative field where sharing just didn't happen for the fear of someone stealing an idea. But gardeners love to share! Think it makes us all better.
