Monarda ‘Gardenview Scarlet’

Summary

Monarda ‘Gardenview Scarlet’ is the only true red-flowering cultivar to rate among the top performers. It has large, 4” wide, didyma-like flowers that are great for attracting hummingbirds. ‘Gardenview Scarlet’ shares this and many other traits in common with Monarda didyma ‘Jacob Cline’. However at 36” tall, ‘Gardenview Scarlet’ is approximately 1’ shorter, and in our trial, exhibited more consistent powdery mildew resistance.
