Last year I grew Monarda from seed.
This year it has started to flower
I love it!
And so do the bees
(But my neighbour says it is a silly looking flower!)

I only got two red ones from my packet of “mixed seeds” and I quite like the red ones!!

I have one like this in red, but I don’t know the name. It is doing great this year.

I like the red ones Sandy – and they are so great for wildlife.

Thank you Sheila, the colour combination makes me really happy just now.

lol is your neighbour blind? Monada is an elegant and structural bloom much more striking than say delphinium blooms which crowd together and shout at the passerby!

Lol – No not blind, but she is a potter so maybe the shape is a bit spiky for her, no smooth rounded sides 🙂
Thanks so much for visiting Rosalind
