I just spent about an hour replying to the masses of comments the blog has taken over the past two days.I followed up some leads on my mystery plant, that had the words MON LAM on the seed packet.These were grown in a silver pot and then transplanted outside where the leafs grew into sage smelling ones, and three layers of flower buds like a wedding cake.
Thanks to all my helpers who helped me scour through the internet, through google images and website search.
The Image to the left is from: http://www.terrapin-gardens.com/perennials/photos/monarda-lambada-m.jpg
I found it on google images after a tip said Monarda.I have seen bee balm before (fraggle flowers) but they were red flowered.
However at the bottom was this picture, just like the pictures i have been posting.The name Monarda Lambada, shortened to Mon Lam on the seed packet.
I was so excited after months of frustration.The relief and joy went all over me.Thanks to all the people who have helped me track this beauty down.The riddle is solved.
