I've noticed that not only people love Monarda flowers and leaves but they also are helpful for garden inhabitants. This plant produces a lot of honey nectar. I've found out that its quite decorative faded heads with seeds are useful for birds in winter. Birds peck seeds and insects hidden among the withered flowers.

What variety of Monarda is growing in your garden? Did you taste tea with Monarda leaves? Thank you!
P.S. I'm on holidays now, I will answer all your comments when I come back!
