Boldly Colored Native for a Pollinator Garden
Looking for a way to support the neighborhood honeybee populations? Try this showy native plant and you'll be amazed how many wonderful creatures visit your yard.
Hummingbirds, butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects flock to the native Bee Balm (Monarda Fistulosa) for a nectar fix. Also known as Wild Bergamot, this is a popular and easy care wildflower to use in the residential landscape.
Super, pinky lavender blooms last a long time in the summer. As a member of the mint flower, you'll want to give it room to spread and create a wonderful display of ethereal fairy flowers. You'll appreciate the fragrant foliage, too.
Plant several in a zig-zag pattern through the center of a sunny garden bed. This is a relatively fine-textured plant and contrasts beautifully when planted in front of shaggier evergreen shrubs. Pair it with late-season bloomers like Asters and Sedum to continue the floral feast. You might also try this in seasonal containers as an upright "Thriller".
Add seating nearby and bring your camera. You won't want to miss the show!
Be sure to plant it in well-drained soil for best performance. In some areas, this native plant actually does a little "too well".
