Alien Ahead


Flower head with another flower head sprouting out of it

Monarda ‘Squaw’

Not really an alien but, seen up close, this Monarda ‘Squaw’ appears like something from another planet. Flowers like elongated claws, a galaxy of stars and a mini-version of the same bursting out of its head! The extended growth seemed quite common on this plant, which I saw at RHS Wisley on Saturday. It must produce a flower and then discover extra reserves of energy so keep on growing.
