Thanks. :) The Wild Bergamont is lavender to purplish-pink. That's what my field guide says anyway. I've never grown this plant before.

If it starts to smell like something wonderfully familiar..... it is because it is the flower used in Earl Grey Tea. The flowers are smaller than the red variety. It is incredibly attractive to bees. I have never started it from seed. This year I am starting the red variety from seed.

My red Bergamot, bought from a perennial sale, has made some little seedlings. Ooo - hope they're red, too.

Yes, Earl Grey tea. :) Funny, I knew of it but never wondered what it looks like and it never occurred to me people grow it in their gardens. Now I'm curious.
