Bergamot, Lemon (Monarda citriodora), packet of 100 seeds


Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Annual or winter annual, good in Zones 5 to 10

(Lemon Mint, Purple Horse Mint, Horsemint) Native to the central and southern United States and Mexico.  Does well on a dry, sunny exposure.  The flowers and decorative bracts are colored outrageously purple, blooming May to August to a height of 3 feet, occurring in multiple dense whorls on the square stems, attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and herbalists to the garden. The leaves are deliciously lemon-scented.  In warmer zones, the plant may be established in the fall, which produces quicker growth and flowering come spring.  in colder zones, this may be grown as a summer annual, starter early indoors and transplanted out after frost.  Space plants 2 feet apart.
