this is the scarlet-red true to type monarda didyma that smells sweet like monarda fistulosa. first color to be separated from panorama mix and bred generations after generations to be true to type. a must have! germinated seeds in a pot last year and even with fertilizer they didn't grow tall to be transplanted. i will buy again seeds and try again because this is a must have :)
