Description

Native to the southern United States and northern Mexico, the self-seeding, annual Lemon Bergamot was used by the Hopi tribe as a seasoning for wild hare.  The lemon-scented leaves can also be rubbed on the skin as an insect repellant and the showy, pink to white, summer-blooming flowers are very attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost at 70 degrees F, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors to well-drained soil in late spring or early summer.  Approximately 250 seeds per packet.
