Product Description

More commonly known as Bergamot, Monarda has unique and exotic looking flowers all summer and into early autumn.

Perfect for sunny borders and containers, it will attract bees and butterflies throughout the flowering season from July to September and is Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators'.
