Art: Monarda didyma

Oh Beebalm, how I love you.

These native beauties are stunning in their own right and I love that they attract butterflies and hummingbirds. But what I can't get over is how well they press.

And how spicy the smell while drying. I've seen people suggest Monarda for potpourri and I can see why, not that overly floral smell it is a lot like basil. Or I think so anyway.
