Bergamot is a pleasantly scented member of the mint family, growing to a height of 3-5 feet, with rose-purple to lavender flowers which grow solitarily on the ends of branches. Each cluster is about 1 ½ inches long and contains about 20-50 flowers. Leaves are 2-3 inches long, lance shaped and toothed. Wild Bergamot can be found in rich soils, dry fields, thickets and clearings, usually in limy well drained soil, with full sun to partial shade. It ranges from North Eastern North America: from Quebec to Minnesota and south to Texas.
