What is the monarda variety alongside the water feature in the Native Plant Garden?
The Monarda in the Native Plant Garden may be Monarda fistulosa, common name wild bergamot.
The garden is still updating the list of native plants; all plants will eventually be listed in the system's interactive map.
I hope you can visit frequently over the spring, summer, and fall as many different plants are blooming in the native plant garden over the seasons.
For tips on a variety of gardening topics, see our Plant Information Guides.
