Monarda is a genus of flowering plants in the mint family with approximately 15 different species only found in North America. The species includes annuals and perennials with tubular flowers that have a narrow upper lip and wider lower lip. The flower heads are typically crowded with leafy bracts, and varies in color from red, pink, and lavender depending on the species. The crushed leaves of all species gives off a spicy, fragrant essential oil, and several species have been used by Native Americans as medicinal plants due to its natural source of the antiseptic compound thymol.
