Keep in mind that monarda is a mint, so it will spread readily. If I have too much, I just pull it out. Sometimes I have takers and sometimes not. I don't know if it matters where you live. I am on the border between zones 6a and 5b here and in 5b at the lake.
I have Marshall's Delight (pink) and a lavender variety, but my absolute favorite is Gardenview Scarlet. It looks like the red ones in the picture with the article. I have a "thing" for red flowers and am always looking for more.
It is a hybrid that is mildew resistant. I had a large patch at one time and gave some to a friend. Then we had a really dry summer and the patch became a lot smaller. I did bring some up to our weekend home at the lake, an hour N. of Dayton. It's spreading slowly and I wouldn't mind if it invaded a bit. My son had some dark purple at his old house and I'm kicking myself for not taking some of it before he moved.
Monarda looks good with almost any color combination, but I do have one patch of the pink ones planted with echinacea and tall phlox. The red ones at the lake are in a large perennial bed with, shasta daisies, echinacea, russian sage, May Night salvia, gooseneck loostrife, coreopsis Early Sunrise, agastache blue (annis hyssop), Joe Pye Weed, swamp milkweed, among others. They each have their own space (not crowded together) and the colors are spectacular together.
