One of a series of Bee balms named for constellations in the Zodiac, Monarda 'Aquarius' has attractive purple pink and somewhat shaggy flowerheads that are very popular with the hummingbirds. They love to dip their beaks into the individual hooded flowers. The aromatic foliage is mildew resistant. When the flowers are spent, cut this back hard to promote new growth and later flowering.

Midsummer, late summer and early autumn.  3-4 ft. x 3-4 ft.

Light Pink Purple flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
