ANNUAL

Summer/fall bloom
Frost tender
 

TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of well-drained seed starting mix 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost date. Cover 1/4 inch deep, keep moist and provide a strong light source until ready to go outside. Transplant into individual containers once seedlings have 2 to 3 sets of true leaves. Transplant into garden once weather warms up after gradually acclimating seedlings to outdoor conditions.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds directly into well worked garden soil in full sun once all danger of frost is past. Space seeds 3 inches apart and cover about 1/4 inch deep. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 10 to 14 days. See final spacing below.

 

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

When well established, thin or transplant seedlings 9 to 12 inches apart so plants have room to mature. You can transplant extra seedlings when thinning.

 

GROWING NOTES

This unique and beautiful annual Monarda is early and long blooming and will attract pollinators and butterflies. The profusion of heat tolerant flower clusters of intense color are perfect for garden beds and great for cutting. Feed and water regularly for best flowers.
