A fast growing annual herb growing 2-3 ft tall and it's in the mint family.

Monarda citriodora, commonly known as Lemon Bee Balm or Lemon Mint, is a native wildflower in North America.
The plant gets its name from its lemony fragrance, which makes it a delightful addition to gardens and landscapes.
Lemon Bee Balm produces clusters of lavender-pink flowers that attract pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
It is a compact and bushy plant, reaching a height of 1 to 3 feet, with aromatic leaves and square stems.
Gardeners appreciate Lemon Bee Balm for its ornamental and culinary uses. The leaves can be used to make herbal teas and add a lemony flavor to dishes.
This perennial plant is relatively low-maintenance and can thrive in full sun to partial shade.
Lemon Bee Balm is also known for its medicinal properties and is used in traditional herbal medicine for its soothing qualities.
It's an excellent choice for pollinator gardens, herb gardens, and native plant landscapes.
Consider planting Lemon Bee Balm near tomatoes and other vegetables to deter insect pests.
Seeds can be sown directly in the garden in the spring or fall, and the plant will readily self-sow for future growth.
