This Razzberry monarda is a fantastic monarda for our SE Mi garden. It blooms profusely, and I have never in the two years we've grown them seen any mildew. It also does propagate easily in the moist soil that it likes, and spreads some, but slowly. Keep deadheading when blooms are just spent and you will be rewarded with more blooms until frost.
