This beebalm has a unique flowering structure–stacked brown spotted yellow flowers surrounded by long pinkish bracts. The bracts will remain attractive long after the flowers have faded. This monarda is a particular favorite of wasps, making it a great wildflower to add if you would like to attract more beneficial, predatory wasps to your garden. Naturally found in sandy and/or rocky soils, this wildflower can grow in poor, shallow soils. This is not considered to be an aggressive spreader like other members of the mint family..
