Wild Bergamot

Multiple erect semi-woody stems lined with dark green leaves emitting a minty aroma topped with flowers. Flowers are pink to lavender colored and have drooping tubular ray flowers lining the outer edge. Attractive to hummingbirds and a number of insects, the blooms are long lasting and will return with dead-heading. Spreads by rhizomes, and can be divided every three years or so to keep from overstepping its bounds. This species is an aggressive spreader so choose the planting site accordingly.
