Monarda (red, newer cultivar)
Of the mint family, so can be a bit aggressive, but worth the trouble. A spectacular perennial for the sunnier gardens and border beds. Seen here in an Oakbrook cottage garden. Also a magnet for hummingbirds and other pollinators.

This modern cultivar of Red Monarda grew to 6′ this wet June of 2015. Quite impressive as it towers above the other perennials in this shade/sun bed!
