Wild Bergamot / Bee Balm

Monarda fistulosa


This is the 1st or 2nd year it has grown up with thin bark-like vines and slender serrated leaves. It looks like mint and smells more like oregano. It did not bloom yet.


It grew in partial shade on the ground in rich, but somewhat dry soil.

It has not produced blooms to my knowledge. But I will keep an eye on it. Thanks.
