Q. Not sure what flower I am growing

Can you please let me know. Also, it is early in the season and the leaves are already browning and the flowers are starting to fade. Anything I can do to revive? Thanks for you help! Picture attached.

That appears to be Monarda fistulosa, also known as wild bergamot and bee balm. It is usually grown in full sun; blooms in July and has problems with powdery mildew. There are cultivars with red blooms. Here is an article on caring for your bergamot. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/bee-balm/controlling-bee-balm-plants.htm
