Monarda fistulosa grows in grasslands and meadows. Wild Bergamont is tolerant of dry conditions but will need suplimental water in most of California's gardens. Monarda fistulosa has fragrant foliage that is often used in tea. Monarda fistulosa grows 3-4 feet tall and rewards us with whorles of lavender to pink flowers for much of the Summer. Monarda fistulosa attracts the White Checkered Skipper Northern White Skipper, and Frittilary Butterflies.
