'Grand Marshall' is a cultivar of Monarda didyma (a close relative of Monarda fistulosa), a beebalm species known for its scarlet flowers; this cultivar instead produces bright, fuchsia purple flowers that bloom from late spring well into the fall. Flowers are surprisingly hardy and are attractive to pollinators and hummingbirds as well as people for their striking colors and the plant's minty aroma.
Typical specimens of Monarda didyma grow slightly taller than their relative, usually to between two and four feet tall, though occasionally as tall as six feet! Since Monarda is in the mint family, 'Grand Marshall' is clump forming, but spreads much more slowly than some of its aggressive relatives. The leaves have a minty perfume scent, and can be used for teas and a variety of traditional folk medicines.
