Monarda citriodora var. austromontana or “Lemmon Beebalm” is a perennial, aromatic mint with multiple whorled flower heads stacked along an elongated spike that grows up to 2ft tall. It is also called Mexican Oregano, and is edible and can be used culinarily. The flower heads hold many small, purplish white flowers that are pollinated by native bees and butterflies when in bloom between July-October. Found on mesas in woodland habitats between 4500-8000ft, plant in partial shade.
