These rose-coloured flowers have been compared to fireworks — a lovely image that accompanies their description on the Minnesota wildflower site.
(Yes, I'm happy to say that we in Saskatchewan share Western Bergamot, or Monarda fistulosa, with a large swath of North America.)
Apparently it grows well in gardens, too...
Note to self: Find seeds, for next year.
