Life Cycle

Hardiness Zone

Grows to about 2ft all in bloom. Multi stemmed from underground rhizomes spreading to form a nice dense patch. Produces unusual looking lavender-coloured tubular flowers arranged in clusters around a central head, blooms from June to September. 

Easy to grow and will tolerate a variety of conditions. Ideally they are given regular to moist well-drained soil and full to part sun exposure. 

The seeds germinate easily and are best sown in flats in the spring and then transplanted out once they are big enough.

The foliage will die back in the fall at which time the plants can be cut back. They will regrow in the spring. Wild Bergamot patches can be dug and divided every few years to encourage new vitality. This should be done in early spring or fall while the plants are still dormant.

The aerial parts can be harvested by cutting the plants down to a few inches above the ground. The medicinal properties are more concentrated when the plants are in bloom during the heat of summer.

Culinary Uses
Leaves and flowers are useful for flavouring various beverages and deserts. Flowers are edible and may be added to salads.

Medicinal Uses
