White Bergamot



Found this interesting piece of information:

"White bergamot--a plant species native to America--received its Latin botanical name in the 1500s. The entire genus--Monarda--was named after the Nicolas Bautista Monardes of Spain, a botanist and a physician. Interestingly, Monardes studied the white bergamot only on Spanish soil through its import to Spain from the United States." ~ Dave's Garden

  3. I've never seen white Monarda. Does it get mildew like all the rest of them?

    1. First I've heard of there being a problem with mildew, Tom. I'll be on the lookout for it.
