Monarda, which is otherwise known as Bee Balm, are a showy group of native hybrid wildflowers. They are very hearty, and do a great job of attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and bees, which are all pollinators and therefore good for the environment. I have actually spotted hummingbirds on my roof in Brooklyn come and hang so they really must be attractive for them to stop at my house when there are so many other great places to go in the big city.
Conditions: Full Sun
Bloom: Mid to late summer
