Hardiness zone 6a. I'm a noob when it comes to plant identification. I'm trying to learn because I kind of was inherited a flower and herb medicinal garden and I'm wondering if this flower is poisonous and if any parts can be used medicinally?

|Looks like a Monarda, possibly didyma.|
Here's our entry for you to compare. Bee Balm (Monarda didyma)

Definitely monarda, or bee balm. Could be monarda didyma or one of the named varieties like Fireball, or Jacob Kline.
Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.
