Description

The extraordinary clustered blooms of the spotted bee balm will add colours to your garden and attract numerous pollinators. As the name suggests, this native perennial is in the mint family and gives off a pleasantly sweet aroma. Dried, the leaves and flowers have great medicinal value. Spotted bee balm would prefer hot and dry areas of your garden with a slightly sandy soil. Flowering begins in the mid-summer and carries on into the fall. Spotted bee balm is an important perennial for attracting Lycaenides Melissa Samuelis (Karner Blue) butterfly, which is among the endangered species in Ontario. The plant is deer resistant.
