Fast-growing, One-of-a-Kind Appeal 

Planting a Bee Balm in your garden is akin to rolling out a red carpet for honeybees!  This vibrant, lavender flower grows in abundance atop mint/basil-scented foliage and will emit its irresistible, fragrant lure across your yard from late spring and into summer.  This lovely, exotic-looking flower is unlike any other bloom you’ll see.  Simple, yet unique, it’s sure to draw your eye with its exclusive appeal. 

Balmy Lilac Bee Balm, (Monarda didyma ‘Balbalmac’), has a spread of 8-10 inches and can reach a height of 12 inches.  Both deer and rabbits tend to leave it alone and it even has improved disease resistance.  Balmy Lilac is overall quite hardy and requires very little care once established.  It’s adaptable to a variety of conditions, thriving in both sun and part shade.  Plant a few throughout your yard for a dependable performance year after year, and one or two in patio containers are a lovely contrast to more typical plantings. Bee balm is also a terrific addition to a butterfly or wildlife garden. 

Bee Balm has always been a popular perennial for those who value dependable, yet unique plantings.  It’s a plant that seems to have it all—lovely flowers, fragrance, wildlife interest and an uncommon appearance all wrapped up in an easy-to-grow plant.  Try one this year and we’re sure you’ll agree that Balmy Lilac Bee Balm is one-of-a-kind!
