Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa) The intricate lavender flowers of Bergamot attract a plethora of butterflies, and the strong stems are sometimes used by Indigo Buntings to build their nests. The fresh leaves can be used to brew a tasty, minty tea, and the seedheads are excellent in dried arrangements.
Crocosmia (Montbretia) These are very easy to grow. The orange flowers are trumpet shaped and appear alternately along the stems. The leaves are long and narrow. This is one of the few summer flowers that are not eaten by the deer.
