Blooming in a shade of vibrant crimson which is sure to make your eyes pop, it’s hard to miss Monarda 'Fireball' when it’s in full bloom! Also known as Bergamot, you may be familiar with the fresh and zesty fragrance which emits from the aromatic leaves on sunny summer days. Just run your hand through them and let the refreshing scent of Earl Grey tea fill the air!

Monarda’s other common name is Bee Balm and is known for its amazing crown-like flowers which provide generous helpings of nectar for bees and other pollinators. If you’re gardening with wildlife in mind, this bee-magnet is a real winner. Fully hardy and reliable, you can plant Monarda 'Fireball' in your borders and expect an easy, low maintenance show, year after year.
