98% of 100

(Monarda punctata) Perennial. What a unique pagoda-style bloom that people and pollinators equally love! While the flowers of this plant are usually yellow with maroon splashes, the real show is in the powdery pink leaf-like bracts. Great for deer-resistant and low-maintenance gardens. Commercially, it has been used because it has more of the beneficial aromatic thymol than other members of the mint family. During flooding and drought conditions, this plant shines and has been called the toughest plant in the garden.
