      Herb Description

      We love our Bergamot Bee Balm so much we wanted to continue the collection of Monarda plants. This unique flowering herb plant gets it's name from a it's blooms that are spotted mixed with pink and Lavender flower clusters. To go along with this beautiful bloom, has the aroma of oregano.

      A great addition to any flower herb garden but it also has medicinal purposes. Using the fresh leaves steeped in water can help ease fever and inflammations. This plant has been used to help horses which is why it's also called Spotted Horsemint or Dotted Horsemint.
