Monarda | Margaret RoseRegular price $12.00 Save $-12.00
A striking coloured bergamot, with lovely dark green leaves and dark rose coloured flowers in mid-summer held on strong stems. Resistant to mildew, although we do find it still gets a little like all of them, but planted amongst other plants of similar heights it is not really noticeable. A fabulous plant for your butterfly garden.
Plants like a evenly moist position throughout the growing season, so adding a layer of mulch will assist in preserving moisture as well as controlling weeds. Deadheading will encourage the plant to re-bloom and flowering can be had right up until late summer early autumn. After the first frost cut back to about 6cm above the ground. Plants are winter dormant and hardy and will come away again in the spring.
