Plant ID please

ecopit(5a IL)June 29, 2006

Can anyone identify this for me? We bought this house last fall, and I am trying to identify the few plants in the yard. I suspect this is a native because it was planted with Black-eyed Susans and Purple Coneflowers.

Looks like one of the Monardas (bee balm) - but I'm not sure which one.

I guess Dotted Beebalm or Bradburn's BeeBalm see photos in link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Monarda

Thank you! That certainly seems like the genus. On initial review I am leaning Monarda menthaefolia, but we shall see. Thanks again.
