In the photo above it looks pink and below it looks more purple. In either case I think it clashed with the Sun Garden. What do you think?
Between wanting the Sun Garden to stay true to its palette and needing both more height and colour in the Monet Garden I made a last minute decision to transplant it just before freeze up.
There are two Monardas in the Sun Garden, both bought at the Friends of Gardens Manitoba annual plant sale and both labelled "red". The other stayed relatively small and never bloomed so let us hope that it is actually red, while this plant grew so vigorously in one year that I divided it into three.
Do you think this colour of Monarda was better suited for the Monet Garden or the Sun Garden?
