It’s well-known that the red dreadlock-like flowers of Monarda didyma are a favorite food of hummingbirds and other pollinators. It’s less-known that the flowers and upper leaves of both Monarda didyma and Monarda fistulosa are edible for us too, and make interesting and colorful additions to salads and pestos. Plant them in moist soils in full sun to part shade. They grow 2 to 4 feet tall with a 2 to 3 foot spread.
