Gardeners' Notes:

super quick growing, which i guess why its known to possibly be a noxious weed. nice flowers-and the look nicer in mass amounts. but dont put these in a planned garden like i did, put out to a backdrop space where they can take over.

Positive sanannie On Dec 3, 2006, sanannie from White Lake, ON (Zone 4b) wrote:

This Monarda was purchased from The Perennial Gardens in Maple Ridge, B.C., (formerly Rainforest Gardens, now closed) in 2002, mostly because the colour was an intriguing description of pink, magenta and orange. It's a very pleasing colour, but I'd have to describe it as half-tone magenta with peachy undertones in a certain light.
