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.

This spring I planted a small division of my last year's Monarda
'Raspberry Wine'.  Quite tall, it is broken but blooming.  I also
purchased and planted in the same general area at the same time Monarda
'Blue Stocking'.  Its tag read 2-4 ft but is only about 15 inches but has
branched out a lot on its own and seems sturdy - but no sign of any
interest in blooming. Since I used the same fertilizer and planted in the
same soil, why would this one not even have a bud by now?  Could it be
that the grower loaded it up with a high nitrogen fertilizer?  But
wouldn't that be gone by now?  I use natural fertilizer mixed in the soil
and some additional Osmocote 6 month 15-9-12.
Any ideas?
