Monarda citriodora Lemon Mint is a well loved secret of seasoned gardeners who have discovered the way to dependably attract beneficial insects and welcome pollinators such as butterflies, hummingbirds and bumble bees. It is used as an herb and also as a cut flower. Lemon Mint Monarda produces eccentric lilac-pink colored, pagoda shaped flower towers with stacking whorls of pointed petals surrounding strong, sturdy, 36" inch spires. Best loved for its unique and delightful lemon mint scent, this Monarda variety is a wonderful cut flower and has the ultimate citrus scent early in the season with the first flush of blooms. Hardy to zone 4, this flowering perennial will self-sow seeds freely if left to overwinter in warmer climates. An excellent choice for nursery growers looking for unique ornamental plantings. All parts of this plant are edible. Packet: 50 seeds.
