Great photos Bazuhi. I love Monarda's... I bought a plant that was supposed to be this one once and it was a washed out weak pink and the plant was weak too. This picture has convinced me to get the seeds and try again! Thank you for sharing. Another great pick GardenGuyKin.

;-) It certainly is a great looking photo. I too love Mondara it has such a wonderful fragrance that the leaves give off. One year I bought one plant and the following year I had heard of them. Humming birds enjoyed them as much as I did...
