Edible Flowers « Wood Ridge Homestead in the Shenandoah Valley

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.
