The boldest blossoms of the bergamot varieties and a favourite for those who are looking to attract a flurry of pollinators to the garden! Red ragged blossoms are easy to spot in their blooming months of July and August. Bergamot has a long history of use by the Native Americans, who would use it for its antibacterial properties as well as topically to treat wounds. Makes an attractive topping to summer salads. Citrus-scented leaves and flowers can be brewed into a pleasant, soothing tea! Antiseptic properties are beneficial for coughs and colds. Prefers well drained soil but is tolerant to a variety of soil conditions as long as it remains moist. Height 2-4 feet.
