Summary

180+ Organic Seeds. With a delightful lemon scent and lavender flowers, this wildflower is a favorite of butterflies and hummingbirds. Stiff, square stems support the tubular and fragrant flowers, and all parts of the plant have a distinct lemony scent when crushed or bruised. Some Monarda species are commonly called bee-balm in reference to a prior use of the leaves as a salve for bee stings. Effective in hummingbird, butterfly, cottage and herb gardens, as well as in native plant areas and prairies. A tender perennial that prefers full sun to part shade and is also deer resistant. A lovely plant all around!

~ planting ~
When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost.
When to start inside: 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.
Direct sow in early spring, planting on the surface of the soil since this seed needs light to germinate. Spread the herb seeds evenly and rake into loose topsoil. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which should occur within 10-20 days at temperatures from 60-70 degrees F. When the seedlings can safely be handled, thin or transplant for wider spacing. Supplemental watering is suggested if spring rains are poor. Provide additional water until the plants reach 10 - 12 inches tall. For an early start, start the seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost and transplant outdoors.
Special germination instructions: Optimum germination temperature is 65° - 70°F (for starting indoors).
