In mid summer, this native wildflower graces the landscape with its light lavender blossoms, offering nectar to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. To humans, Wild Bergamot provides food and medicine. Its leaves and flowers are highly aromatic and spicy, like Greek Oregano, and are used similarly. Sip teas made from the leaves and flowers or add them to sauces, soups, and salads. Make tinctures to support the upper respiratory system. Or, most simply, toss the lovely tubular flowers onto any dish."
Nancy says: " I LOVE this plant! It is so easy to grow and is always covered with pollinators and beloved by butterflies. I have a huge clump in my garden but now that we carry the seeds, I plan to add it into a lot more of my borders. A great native."
