Edible Flowers « Wood Ridge Homestead in the Shenandoah Valley. One of the few herbs that I grow to dry for tea is Bee Balm, Monarda didyma.
Another Bee Balm species, Monarda fistulosa, often referred to as Wild Bergamot, is very similar. These two species of Bee Balm have a long history as a medicinal plant and are now used to propagate crosses and hybrid plants. Bee Balm is a perennial herb from the Mint family and can be found growing wild. Native Americans used Bee Balm for the antiseptic qualities and the Oswego Tribe from New York made a tea known as Oswego Tea which they later shared with early American colonists. Whether grown as a species plant or as a hybrid, Bee Balm offers many qualities to the gardener. When blooming, Bee Balm is an ornamental flower in the garden but the petals and the leaves can also be harvested as a culinary herb. Bee Balm leaves, flowers, and stems are also used in alternative, herbal medicine as an antiseptic, carminative, diuretic, and stimulant. Disclaimer: All the typical stuff — No guarantees, no risk.
