Blooms from midsummer right through into autumn
Distinctive whorled flowers are a magnet for bees and great for cutting
Improved mildew resistance
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 bloom almost continuously from July to September with regular deadheading. More mildew-resistant than many older varieties, Monarda ‘Mohawk’ bears whorls of mauve-pink flowers, each surrounded by a ruff of darker purple bracts. The 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, purple-leafed plants and hardy geraniums. Height: 90cm (35in). Spread: 45cm (18in).
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.
