Spotted Bee Balm
Monarda Punctata is also known as Spotted Bee Balm or Horsemint. This perennial wildflower is native to southern Michigan, growing abundantly in the sandy soils in south-western Michigan. Spotted Bee Balm reaches 2 feet tall and flowers from July to September with a unique blossom - tiers of white or pink petals highlight clumps of lime green, topped with whorls of white and brown speckled tube flowers.
It prefers full sun to partial shade, wet to dry soil and will grow in loam or sand. A unique addition to the garden and a lover of sandy soils!
