Monarda ‘Pardon My Pink’

Summary

Monarda ‘Pardon My Pink’ is a dwarf cultivar with medium-pink flowers. The plants were relatively lush compared to many of the other dwarf cultivars which typically lacked vigor. Powdery mildew resistance was fair, but even with only mild infections, leaf drop was significant. By the third year of the trial, the plants may have been better established, because even though powdery mildew was at its worst, there was less defoliation.
