Monarda bradburiana (BRADBURY'S MONARDA)
bloom Jun | height 2’ | full to part-sun
The flower of Monarda bradburiana resembles that of its larger cousin, Monarda fistulosa, but possibly a bit more dramatic. It is a late spring bloomer that really stands out in the landscape. There is everything to like about this species —beautiful flower that attracts hummingbirds and bumblebees, compact habit that fits well into any garden, foliage that matures to deep burgundy tones in fall, and that spectacular Monarda seed head that persists through the winter. Plant in repeating groupings of five or more in larger garden settings.
Plants that grow well with Bradbury's monarda: black-eyed susan (Rudbeckia fulgida var. speciosa), plains oval sedge (Carex brevior), purple love grass (Eragrostis spectabilis).
