Bee Balm


Monarda fistulosa  

Photographed at Brunswick Community College Supply, NC on August 21, 2015.  A North American native plant in the mint family with aromatic, hair covered leaves.  This plant sports a beautiful candelabra style flower supplying large quantities of nectar and serving as excellent purple bee pasture.  This Bee-Balm or Wild Bergamot, as it is often referred, demonstrates a soft, lavender colored bloom as opposed to its arrest-me-red cousin Monarda didyma.  This genus is named after a Spanish botanist, Nicholas Monardes, who authored the first book on medicinal plants of North America in 1571.
