Bergamot (Monarda Didyma) 100 seeds (#1968)

Excellent clump forming plant with aromatic foliage and wonderful "tousled" flowers. Also called Bee Balm, it attracts beneficial insects.
It spreads via stolons and rhizomes to form substantial clumps over time. In mid-spring it sends up square stems lined with opposite, toothed leaves. These are very fragrant when crushed. Its blooms may appear in early or midsummer, depending on geographic location. The terminal flower clusters are comprised of lots flowers subtended by a ruff of burgundy bracts (petal-like modified leaves). The flowers are primarily hummingbird and bee pollinated. When flowers are spent, they turn brown and produce tiny, inconspicuous fruits.
Grows best in full sun and fertile, moderate to well-drained soil that’s evenly moist. It spreads quickly and requires division every two years or so. Deadhead to extend bloom time and prevent self-sowing. This beebalm is highly susceptible to powdery mildew, an unattractive foliar disease. It can be deterred by encouraging good air circulation.
Space plants well and thin out interior stems of too dense. Heavily diseased stems can also be removed to slow mildew spread. Some cultivars have been bred to be mildew resistant.
