Re: monardas


My 'Blue Stocking' is just now blooming - at about 2 feet.  I always had a 
large mass of Monarda because the deer never touched it and it gave me
so much summer color - until last year when the deer completely mowed
it down.  It has come back poorly this year - not much bloom so far.  I have
sprayed regularly with a rotation of three different sprays, and so far not 
as
much has been eaten, but the Monarda didn't come back very strong. It
was such a disappointment to have it eaten.  Sorry, Kitty, but I still feel 
I
am losing the battle.

Could it possibly be a very late bloomer.  I know my old fashioned lavender 
monarda quit blooming about a month ago, but the raspberry and the Jacob 
Kline are still going strong.  I've got two new petit pink ones I've yet to 
get planted.  We've had so much rain lately that cleomes and amaranth not 
seen in several years have come up and are blooming profusely.
