Horsemint

Today’s post includes some more wildflowers found on my spring 2012 wildflower trek in southeast Missouri. This was a new wildflower for me. I narrowed this down to a Monarda species, and believe it to be Monarda russeliana, or more commonly called “Wild Bergamot” or “Horsemint” (Identification correction is always welcomed!). This flower was just beginning to flower when I was there, so it made it more difficult to identify. Here are some images I made of this Missouri beauty:

I think you will agree that this is a wonderful find.
