It's on the north side of the house with some good morning exposure. I haven't had mildew problems with it, though the Blue Stocking monardas that are nearby often do.

However, we had a really hot, dry summer in Salt Lake, so that tends to suppress mildew.

I just planted this in July. It is spreading well, but appears to be having a mildew problem. How do I stop the mildew? Also I am not sure if I need to trim this down in the winter.

Neutral Gabrielle On Feb 4, 2006, Gabrielle from (Zone 5a) wrote:

Hot pink monarda! New selection has a habit similar to 'Marshall's Delight' and has fairly good mildew resistance. Uniform growth. 36-42" tall by 42-48". Used as a cut flower; attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.

In my zone 5 garden it has been an evergreen and blooms from June-July.
