Bee Balm - Purple Rooster

Full Sun for Purple Blooms


Monarda (Bee Balm) Purple Rooster, Monarda didyma 'Purple Rooster', is a native, clump-forming plant of the mint family.


‘Purple Rooster’ will really “strut its stuff” in the landscape with its deep wine colored flowers that appear as "raspberries" in bud stage.


This Bee Balm is easy to grow to 36", multiplies quickly, and is native of eastern North America; has minty aromatic foliage often used to flavor teas multiplies quickly.


The purple flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden, but is rabbit and deer resistant.


Bee Balm has a tendency to become invasive, so in order to keep plants healthy and vigorous, division is necessary every few years, and should be done in the spring. 


Although it will grow in average soil, it does enjoy the rich organic moist soil along riverbanks.  


In spring, remove dead foliage only.  In fall, cut back to 6" and dead-head spent flowers.  Deadheading spent blooms will prolong the bloom time.


‘Purple Rooster’ will offer its extravagant presence when planted in your garden!


*Wine Red Blooms All Summer


*Hardy and Adaptable


*Attracts Bees and Butterflies, but Deer and Rabbit Resistant
