Spotted Beebalm

Monarda punctata

Multiple erect stems with dark green whorled leaves topped with flowers. The whorls of yellow tinged, purple spotted, tubular flowers, each with a large whitish pink tinged leaf-like bract, line the top of the stem and give this plant a very unique appearance. Very fragrant minty aroma is emitted from the foliage. This species tends to spread through seeds rather than rhizome, and it's spread can generally be controlled by cutting back the seed heads before they ripen.
