Monarda x 'Raspberry Wine' (Lamiaceae)
(mo-NAR-da)
Raspberry Bee Balm

MA Plant Breeder Darrell Probst selected this vibrant raspberry-red Bee Balm. Unopened buds and showy bracts are tinged with fuchsia-purple, and we love the sweetly minty fragrance of its foliage. Multistemmed plants reach 3-4' in height, bloom in early summer, and thrive in a slightly moist spot in sun or part shade. Among the top rated Monardas in Mt. Cuba Centerís Bee Balm trials.
