    Monarda didyma, commonly known as scarlet beebalm or Oswego tea, is a perennial plant native to North America. It belongs to the mint family, Lamiaceae, and is known for its bright red, tubular flowers which resemble ragged pompoms. This plant typically grows in clusters in moist, fertile soils and is often found in woodland areas or along stream banks. It has a distinctive, aromatic foliage with a fragrance similar to that of the bergamot orange, which is why it's sometimes also known as bergamot.
