New! This has vibrant scarlet red flowers above the stout stems from midsummer to early autumn. Gardenview Scarlet was selected from the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Plant Evaluation Program as an outstanding perennial for gardens. The flowers’ sweet nectar attracts scores of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden but is deer and rabbit resistant! The aromatic foliage smells like mint when crushed and is often used to flavor teas. This monarda provides color and contrast for the perennial border, wild garden, meadow, and herb garden or along ponds or streams. A native of the eastern US so definitely not drought tolerant under Wyoming conditions, best used in and around water gardens, ponds, or traditionally watered bluegrass lawns.
