Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Best grown in an average to moist soil, in full sun, however, it is tolerant of partially shady locations. Powdery mildew is a common, fungal problem for monarda, although some cultivars are more resistant. All monarda should be planted in open areas that receive good, air circulation and keep a consistently moist soil, to help prevent mildew problems. Mature clumps should be thinned out.
