If you live in the United States, you should know about the USDA Plants Database! (

Identifying what plants are actually native to your area can be surprisingly tricky. A lot of info out there is state- (or even less helpfully, region-) specific, but if you live in a large and/or geographically diverse state what’s native in one corner may be completely foreign in another.

I had also planted red beebalm (Monarda didyma) and spotted beebalm (Monarda punctata) in the same flower bed. Both of the latter flowered the first year and the red beebalm is already...
