Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa) is a well known and highly adaptable native plant that thrives in all but the wettest soils. The lavender tubular flowers offer a popular nectar source for pollinators and attract a wide variety of bees and butterflies. Hummingbirds may also visit. A member of the mint family, Bergamot was historically used by indigenous people for a variety of medicinal applications. The distinctly aromatic leaves are commonly used to make tea, and the button seed heads are popular in dried floral arrangements.
