Monarda is so quick and easy from seed. Direct seeding allows you to create swaths of Bee Balm color
exactly where you want it. The Hummers and bees fight it out and it's interesting to watch the Hummers chase the Bees away.
The scented foliage is said to have been used to make tea and the scent is heady.
All in all a wonderful addition to the garden.

Great comment Janice! Can you add it directly to the plant entry too rather than just attached to your image? Thumbs up
