Wild Bergamot Characteristics
Wild Bergamot are hardy herbs that are perfect for herb gardens and naturalized areas. They are tolerant of deer, drought, clay, and dry and rocky soils. The soils can tolerate poor fertility and drought. Wild Bergamot self-seeds and may become overgrown and unkempt. Deadheading spent flowers helps to reduce self-seeding and encourages additional bloom in the same growing season.
Poor air circulation can result in severe powdery mildew infections.
