Monarda ‘Judith’s Fancy Fuchsia’

Summary

Monarda ‘Judith’s Fancy Fuchsia’ is a tall cultivar with vibrant, purplish red flowers. Its taller habit and prolific floral display are very similar to ‘Raspberry Wine’ and ‘Colrain Red’. In fact, all three of these cultivars ranked among the top performers in the trial. However, ‘Judith’s Fancy Fuchsia’ slightly edged out the other two thanks to its superior resistance to powdery mildew. This cultivar is sometimes sold as ‘Peter’s Fancy Fuchsia’ but that name is incorrect.
