Monarda 'Raspberry Wine'
A wonderful mildew-resistant bee-balm from Darryl Probst and introduced by White Flower Farm. The buds resemble raspberries and the flowers are a clear, wine red. Large leaves. Wine-red flowers appear between July and August.
Bee-Balms are treasured garden herbs, nectar providers, and showy ornamentals. They have bright spider-like flowers and can form impressive massings. We offer the varieties with the highest mildew resistance we can find, although Monardas do best with constant moisture and ample space. Deadhead for extended bloom.
