    Thanks for the link. It does look more like the Monarda now that I see the picture with the large seed head. I ordered the Barbara’s Buttons plant from Plants Delight after seeing it.

    You’re welcome Diana, sometime it is hard to tell from pictures especially the close-up kind. Those Narrow-leaf Barbara’s Buttons are pretty though. Here link to the Monarda fistulosa. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monarda_fistulosa

    Thanks, Laura. You might be right. I also happened to find this plant on Plant Delights web site that I thought it might be http://www.plantdelights.com/Marshallia-tenufolia-Irwin-Co-GA-ex-for-sale/ I did not know that Monarda had such a large seed head but I don’t have the wild variety.

    Looks like Wild Bergamot or Bee Balm (Monarda fistulosa).
