Also known as Wild Bergamot, this showy perennial has aromatic leaves and tufts of lavender tubular flowers that bloom June to August atop open-branched stems. Grows to 2-4 feet tall, and 12-18 inches wide. A must for avid butterfly and hummingbird gardeners. Prefers sun to part shade, and average to moist soils. Tolerates poor soils and drought. Deer resistant. Great as a stand alone or planted in groups remembering to leave plenty of space between plants for good air circulation to reduce the chance of powdery mildew. A good choice for herb gardens, wild gardens, meadows, rain gardens and naturalizing. Makes a great cut flower. Flowers are also edible and mint-smelling leaves make a great tea. Of special value to bumble bees according to the Pollinator Program at The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.
