Clumps of aromatic foliage play host to whorls of scarlet flowers throughout summer. Monarda 'Fireball' has a more compact habit than older cultivars and shows less susceptibility to mildew, so you can confidently plant it in a prominent spot. The shorter stems also make this Bergamot good for cutting. This attractive hardy perennial, is free flowering, easy to grow and a magnet for bees, butterflies and other insects. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 40cm (16").
Culinary note: Use the dried leaves to make Bergamot tea or use the sweet, spicy flavoured petals to enhance salads, jellies, rice or pasta dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.
