Monarda bradburiana, commonly known as eastern beebalm or Bradbury's beebalm, is a perennial flowering plant in the mint family, Lamiaceae, that is native to much of the southeastern United States. It is a popular garden plant due to its attractive flowers and aromatic foliage.

Here are some of the characteristics of Monarda bradburiana:

  • Height: 1-2 feet
  • Spread: 1-2 feet
  • Bloom time: Late spring to early summer
  • Flower color: Pale pink to lavender, with purple spots
  • Sun exposure: Full sun to part shade
  • Soil moisture: Dry to medium
  • USDA hardiness zones: 5-8

Monarda bradburiana is a relatively easy plant to care for. It is drought-tolerant and deer-resistant. It does best in well-drained soil and may need to be watered during dry periods. Deadheading spent flowers will help to prolong the bloom time.

Monarda bradburiana is a valuable plant for pollinators, such as bees and butterflies. It is also a good choice for butterfly gardens and wildflower meadows.

If you are looking for a low-maintenance, attractive flowering plant for your garden, Monarda bradburiana is a great option.
