Summary

Monarda ‘Raspberry Wine’ is a tall cultivar with vibrant, purplish red flowers. Its habit and floral display are very similar to both ‘Judith’s Fancy Fuchsia’ 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.
