This splendid monarda species comes from an early 1990's collection by Yucca Do Nursery in the Puerto Purificacion region of the Sierra Madre Occidentale mountain range in Tamaulipas, Mexico. The 4' tall clumps of slightly aromatic, jagged-lobed green leaves are topped in June and July with hundreds of mauvy-lavender flower heads. We have seen no signs of mildew on this reportedly mildew-resistant species along with a greatly reduced spreading habit from its US counterparts Monarda fistulosa and Monarda didyma...give your bees a taste of South-of-the-Border cuisine!
