Bee Balm

Pick a variety of this flower that is resistant to powdery mildew and plant it as a garden border with plenty of air circulation around it. When red or white flowers open, pluck their spindle-like petals for salads. If it's time to prune, snip away bunches of leaves and hang them to dry. Add one dried leaf to a cup of black tea for a boost of wild bergamot flavor.
