Help the Bees!

SUGAR BUZZ® Blue Moon Bee Balm (Monarda SUGAR BUZZ® ‘Blue Moon’) is a gorgeous new entry into the bee balm family. It has all of the qualities of traditional Monarda and adds a few new twists to boot.

Blue Moon has a refreshing color scheme. Instead of the shades of reds and pinks that you often see in bee balms these days, this is a cool lavender-blue that really stands out against the dark green foliage.

This is more compact than other Monarda. It grows into a well-mannered rounded clump, rather than a wild and rangy bush. It will still spread to fill a space, but it's bred to be less aggressive than it's cousins. Place this one near the front of the border and let it do it's thing. You'll love it!

Blue Moon is remarkably floriferous, blooming constantly all summer long. The flowers don’t fade giving you rich color all season. The foliage is fragrant, which adds to the delightful garden experience.

Perfect for pollinator gardens, all of the monarda family attract bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and moths, so it is sure to add buzz to your landscape. However, deer and rabbits will turn their noses up to these plants. Pair this with Asters for a soothing, tonal landscape that serves as critical nectar sources for local populations of butterflies.

This is bound to become one of your favorite new garden plants. Give it some room to spread and enjoy the color, fragrance and life it brings to your garden year after year. Order your SUGAR BUZZ® Blue Moon Bee Balm from us today!
