Balloon flower is one of my favourites! Yours is a beautiful colour, chico. I have a pale pink one.

I think the former red is really pretty anyway! And I read that bees can "see" better in the violet spectrum.:shrug: Maybe yours set seed and the seed reverted to another parent. Hopefully you will still have some red pop up.

I'll save you some red seeds.

It's still very pretty, chico! I've never seen a monarda of quite that shade. :cloud9:

Your little balloon flower is cute, too. I love the buds!! :D
