WILD BERGAMOT Seeds | Perennial | Beneficial Bees Hummingbirds | BEE BALM. 2000+ Seeds

**Wild Bergamot** (Monarda fistulosa) is a perennial wildflower native to most of North America ¹. It is a member of the mint family and grows 2-4 feet tall in full sun and well-drained soil. Wild Bergamot blooms for one month in summer and attracts many bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds ¹. Here are some tips for growing Wild Bergamot:

1. **Planting**: Wild Bergamot can be grown from seeds. Plant the seeds directly in the garden or in containers when the last frost has passed in your area. The ideal garden location for Wild Bergamot will get lots of sunlight and have well-drained soil. Space Wild Bergamot plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the garden. Position nursery plants and seedlings at the same depth they were in their previous container.

2. **Sunlight**: Wild Bergamot prefers full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days. Too little light can cause leggy growth with sparse foliage. However, Wild Bergamot does struggle in extreme heat. So if you live in a hot climate, give your Wild Bergamot a little shade from the strong afternoon sun.

3. **Watering**: Water the plant frequently until it is established. Once established, Wild Bergamot doesn't need much water to grow.

4. **Deadheading**: Deadhead the old flowers to encourage reblooming.

5. **Uses**: Wild Bergamot is good for attracting bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and birds to your yard! This is truly one of the showier native plants you can grow.
