      Hi @Anne Doherty -- I don't think they are in the same family. Monarda/bee balm is a mint. But I love verbena too! Let me know if you find out.

    Thanks, everyone! My sweet mom instilled a love of gardening in me at a young age. She's now in her 70's and we still make yearly treks to the greenhouses to ooh and ahh over all the choices. She always says "a house just looks better with a few flowers"!
