Garden Snippet- Oswego Tea Bee Balm (Monarda didyma)

Garden Snippet- Oswego Tea Bee Balm (Monarda didyma)

I love this plant, for so many reasons. First of all, its in the mint family so it smells GREAT. Its an excellent native choice for your garden because the color is bright and lasts for awhile. Its called “Oswego tea” because the Native Americans brewed tea with it. Bonus- it will attract butterflies.
