SKU: mon_pun_000 Categories:
Monarda punctata has 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 purple-tinged leaf-like bract, line the top of the stem and give this plant a very unique appearance. A very fragrant aroma is emitted from the foliage. This monarda species tends to spread through seeds rather than rhizome, and its spread can generally be controlled by cutting back the seed heads before they ripen.
