sad monarda

Jacinta Byrne asked 10 years ago

This monarda we bought last year was helathy and flowering but seems to be struggling; I’ve given it plenty of water and it’s in a courtyard which gets afternoon sun; anything I can do for it?

This monarda is at the dry base of a wall, a position it does not like and watering would need to be very frequent.

Move it to a spot in sunshine with a more moist soil.

There are plenty of other plants that would like the spot it vacates, such as phygelius.
