Horsemint – Monarda citriodora

The individual flowers also remind one of the Charles Munch painting The Scream, according to some folks I know. Look as hard as I can, I still don’t see it. It attracts bees and butterflies and is a common sight throughout the hill country. This specimen was photographed back in May during the NPSOT field trip.
