Bergamot is a perennial or annual culinary and medicinal herb native to most of southern Canada and the United States east of the Rockies, except Maritime Provinces, and peninsular Florida, south to Veracruz in eastern Mexico. Bergamot grows wild in dry open woods, fields, wet meadows and ditches, and at the edges of woods and marshes in the eastern fourth of Texas

Bergamot is typically grown in a home garden as an ornamental and for brilliant cut flower arrangements, but it is also a powerful medicinal herb! Beautiful Bergamot blossoms make for easy, brilliant bouquets and dry into perfectly perfumed potpourri or herbal tea. Bergamot remains a prominent healing staple in traditional folk medicine. It grows wild throughout its native regions and the tea has long been used for colds, headaches and indigestion.

Bergamot is very fast-growing and grows compact, bright pink to lavender clumps of glossy, sweet aromatic flowers.  Easy-growing Bergamot is right at home on hard to plant sloping areas, cottage gardens, and meadows.  They tolerate almost any soil condition, as long as it's well drained. It thrives in full sun or part shade. 

Lemon Bergamot leaves have a lemony flavor and aroma and pink to purple blooms, where Sweet Leaf Bergamot leaves have a more sweet and minty flavor and aroma and lavender to rose blooms.
