Monarda for the south?
Attention southern gardeners: Has anyone grown Monarda "Peter's Purple" and, if so, what have your experiences been? I was perusing the new High Country Gardens catalog and they describe it as heat-tolerant (they list it as Zones 6-10) and completely mildew resistant, and it apparently has done very well in trials in Texas. Since monarda was far and away the biggest hummingbird attractor for me when I grew it in New York, I am tempted...
