Grow the attractive Lemon Mint, from freshly harvested Monarda citriodora seeds. Lemon Mint is an attractive flower, just as much as it is a fragrant herb. These plants grow to a mature height of roughly 12 to 24 inches tall, displaying beautiful lavender colored blooms along it's erect stems. The leaves are slender and green, placed underneath the clusters of lemon scented, 2 inch blooms. Lemon Mint is known to attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, such as bumblebees, honeybees, butterflies and hummingbirds as well. They are a popular pick in most butterfly gardens and insectaries. The citrus flavored leaves can be minced and added to flavor teas and fruit jellies.


Lemon Mint is categorized as an annual flowering herb. Annuals will grow quickly from freshly harvested seeds, blooming through the summer months and later wilting from harsh frosts. The seeds are known to drop to the bare ground beneath, allowing fresh plants to return the following Spring season. You can also collect the seeds from dried flower heads at the end of the Autumn season, for resowing the following year.


Lemon Mint plants make a great cut flower for floral arrangements and bouquets as well, giving off their minty, lemon scent. Simply cut the tops, allowing the base of the plant to regrow. This can also help establish and promote new plant life from your Lemon Mint plants.

SOWING THE SEED

Monarda seeds can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow at a depth of 1/16” under topsoil, in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Transplant, or direct sow into the garden or in containers when the weather is warm. Keep in mind that Monarda seeds will require direct light to germinate properly.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Lemon Mint plants will enjoy an area that receives full sunlight to partial shade for the majority of the day. They tend to thrive best in rich, well draining soils. To increase your drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to any areas that consist of hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily to ensure that the soil is kept moist until germination has occurred.

GERMINATION & GROWTH

Lemon Mint seeds will typically germinate within 14 to 28 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of around 12 to 24 inches tall and can be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Lemon Mint will produce gorgeous, 2 inch, lavender colored flowers that will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as bumblebees, honeybees, hummingbirds & butterflies.
