Monarda punctata

This Florida native from the mint family grows wild in dry disturbed areas all along eastern North America and even into northeastern Mexico. Grows to be around 4 ft tall and blooms in late summer, with an abundance of showy pink/violet calyxes and white, spotted flowers, which attract tons of pollinators to your garden. 

Horsemint can be used as a cullinary herb, as it  contains thymol, and tastes/smells similar to Thyme and oregano. It has been used medicinally for digestive/gas problems, as well as for menstrual cramping. 

Dotted horsemint, or spotted beebalm is a fantastic addition to either an herb or pollinator garden.
