Petite Delight Bergamot is a compact native herbaceous perennial with aromatic toothed dark  green foliage.  The fringe-like lavender-rose flowers blooms in whorls at the top of the thick stems all summer and attract bees and butterflies.  Best in full sun and well-drained soil.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  Mildew resistant variety. 

Monarda didyma is a native host for several moths, including Gray Marvel and Hermit Sphinx.  The flower nectar also attracts other pollinators, bees, butterflies, and the Ruby-Throated hummingbird.  

Tea of Bergamot leaves is said to aid the body in fighting infection and low fevers. The smell and consumption of Bee Balm may relaxing the spirit.*
