Monarda 'Red Velvet'
Common Name: Bee Balm
Ships As: Perennial Bareroot #1 Grade
'Red Velvet' has large cherry red flowers. Newly emerging foliage has a bronze cast. Monarda is native to eastern North America, so it is easy to grow, and it multiplies quickly. The flowers' sweet nectar attracts scores of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden. The aromatic foliage smells like mint when crushed and is often used to flavor teas.
