Balmy Purple Bee Balm
Reddish-Purple Blooms on a Hardy Perennial
Balmy Purple Bee Balm, (Monarda didyma ‘Balmy Purple’), bursts forth on the garden scene in late spring and continues its show into early summer. At a distance, the profuse blooms present a somewhat fuzzy appearance, with the adorable blossoms resplendent in reddish-purple color.
The dark green foliage is not only lovely but also has a delightful mint/basil fragrance. Named “bee balm” for a reason, Balmy Purple Bee Balm is a sure lure to many types of pollinators, not only encouraging pollination in your garden but bringing the whimsy of fluttering butterflies, bees and hummingbirds to enhance your home. All-in-all, Balmy Purple Bee Balm is a wonderful variety with a lot to offer.
Your Balmy Purple Bee Balm will grow up to 12 inches in height with a 10-inch spread. It has an upright nature and tends to be fast growing. Deer and rabbits generally pass Balmy Purple by, and it’s even disease resistant—so a hardy little plant to be sure! Balmy Purple is a dwarf plant with a compact nature so it fits well in almost any space to provide consistent color and definition for your garden.
Bee Balms are always popular, and this dwarf variety allows you to have one in your garden without a large commitment of space. A terrific little plant that will flower with brilliant blooms and require little from you, Balmy Purple Bee Balm is a must have this year!
