Lemon mint flower




Lemon mint is the common name of the plant that
is botanically known as Monarda citriodora. Representing the min family
it bears alternative names of Purple horse mint or Lemon beebalm.







The plant is noted by its citrus scent when
broken and showy purple blooms that attract bees and hummingbirds.
Sometimes, particularly late in the summer season, the lemon mint's
aroma resembles oregano more than lemon.



It thrives in prairies, along road sides and other sunny locations from
California to Florida, and from Nebraska to Texas. Namely in these
places one can enjoy the plant’s outstanding blankets of summer
blossoms.








Lemon mint is sometimes used for making various kinds of the herbal
teas.
