With a delightful lemon scent and lavender flowers, this wildflower is a favorite of butterflies and hummingbirds. Stiff, square stems support the tubular and fragrant flowers, and all parts of the plant have a distinct lemony scent when crushed or bruised. Some Monarda species are commonly called bee-balm in reference to a prior use of the leaves as a salve for bee stings. Effective in hummingbird, butterfly, cottage and herb gardens, as well as in native plant areas and prairies. A lovely plant all around!
