Wild Bergamot

WILD BERGAMOT has been one of the most pleasant surprises in our garden. It didn't come up until the second year, and for a long time, we suspected it was a weed. But it had pleasant looking foliage with red stems, so we decided to wait and see if it turned into anything. Did it ever! One evening we walked out to discover that frilly purple blooms had popped out all over. Wild Bergamot is supposed to bloom June through September. If that's true, we are sold on this beautiful plant! I'm eager to try making tea from the aromatic dried leaves.
