Description

Add a splash of red to your garden! Scarlet Bee Balm (Monarda didyma) is a low maintenance perennial that grows well in a variety of garden locations, but prefers soil that retains a higher moisture level. Best grown in clumps to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Great for planting by the cottage or beside a pond or stream. Like Wild Bergamot, the leaves of this Bee Balm also give off a sweet aroma. This plant has a clumping habit and spread by rhizomes, making it a good choice for soils that need stabilizing.
