Description

Bergamot are unusual-looking but hardworking perennials that deserve a place in any herbaceous border or wildlife garden. Stiff, upright stems bear distinctive whorls of tubular flowers that are a magnet for bees and butterflies, and bloom almost continuously from July to September with regular deadheading. The unique flowers make an excellent addition to bouquets and the citrus-scented leaves can be eaten in salads or dried and used to make pot pourri. Unfussy about soil type and thriving anywhere from full sun to dappled shade, this reliable and free-flowering perennial will quickly form a dense clump that associates beautifully with ornamental grasses and purple-leafed plants.

From the latest Monarda breeding, the 'Elegant' series are compact varieties that have better mildew resistance than older monarda cultivars. Monarda 'Elegant Rose' bears whorls of intense reddish pink flowers with a prominent burgundy central dome.

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.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Pot up Monarda plugs and grow them on in cool, frost free conditions until they are large enough to be transplanted into their final positions outside. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days. Bergamot plants dislike soils which are particularly dry or have a tendency to waterlogging. Plant them in a moist, well drained soil, adding compost or well rotted manure to amend excessively heavy clay or sandy soils. Choose a position in sun, semi shade or dappled shade.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded bergamot flower heads to encourage more blooms to be produced. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown of each plant in spring. Lift and divide clumps of monarda plants every 3 years in autumn to maintain vigorous, healthy growth.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
