Monarda didyma

Bee Balm

Showy, pom-pom shaped red flowers atop upright, clumping foliage in summer. Its fragrant leaves are unappealing to deer and rabbits, while native pollinators love it as a nectar source. Spreads by rhizomes. Native.

Drought tolerant but will also do well in boggy situations and clay soil. Can be grown under black walnut trees.
