Bee Balm - Petite Delight

The Monarda 'Petite Delight', Monarda didyma, also known as Bee Balm, Bergamont, Horsemint, Oswego Tea, is a clump-forming perennial that has tubular, two-lipped, light red to purple flowers with dark green aromatic foliage.


'Petite Delight' stands at 15' high and has a plant spread of 12-18" and blooms from July to August. It is one of the smallest Monarda in its family and has the darkest foliage.


If deadheaded, (remove old flowers from a plant) longer bloom times will be encouraged.   Needs to be planted in full sun, but will tolerate afternoon shade.
Petite Delights are best grown in rich soil in a well-drained area, not being allowed to dry out.


The leaves of Monarda can be used for teas and in salads, and attracts hummingbirds, butterflies and bees.


When massed, Monarda provides color and contrast for the perennial border, wild garden, meadow, and herb garden or along ponds or streams!
