Monarda d. 'Cambridge Scarlet'


1-qt potted plants

Common Name: Bee Balm

The best of the reds in Monarda. Abundant 3.5" scarlet-red blooms with red-tinged bracts stand tall and beckon bees and hummingbirds. Scented foliage deters the deer. This variety is robust so give it room to expand in a pollinator garden. Photo: Ball Horticultural Co.
