Monarda citriodora | Lemon Bee Balm | Purple Horsemint


Here I am offering Seeds from Monarda citriodora, also known as Lemon Mint, Lemon Balm, Purple Horsemint, Lemon Bee Balm, and Beebalm. This Annual flower is nicely fragrant which is one reason that it is a big hit with the bees, birds, and butterflies. It likes to live in sun or partial shade where it blooms from late Spring until the middle of the Summer. The leaves are edible and used as an herb, condiment, and to brew tea. Lemon Mint is a nectar plant for the Hummingbird Clearwing moth, and the Giant Swallowtail, and Diana Fritillary butterflies. Monarda citriodora is also a larval host plant for the Hermit sphinx moth.
