Monarda, also called bee balm, horsemint, oswego tea, and bergamot, is putting on a good show this summer, in spite of the dry conditions. I seldom see the blossoms without pollinators buzzing about the explosive blooms. Pinch the leaves and you'll find hint of earl grey tea lingering on your finger tips. A member of the mint family, it is one of my favorite.
