Bee Balm - Pink Lace
Bee Balm Pink Lace, Monarda 'Pink Lace' PPAF, is a delightful new bee balm with a tidy compact habit. At only 16" tall, it is perfect for the front of the border or even in containers.
The color is a striking lipstick pink that really draws your attention, and also that of hummingbirds and butterflies.
Monarda 'Pink Lace' is an easy to grow, deer resistant perennial!
Monarda is native to eastern North America, so it is easy to grow and it multiplies quickly. The aromatic foliage smells like mint when crushed and is often used to flavor teas.
Monarda is 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.
Attracting hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, particularly when massed, Monarda provides color and contrast for the perennial border, wild garden, meadow, and herb garden or along ponds or streams.
This plant prefers neutral to alkaline soils.
