Description

Add a splash of red to your garden! Low maintenance perennial that grows well in a variety of garden locations, but prefers soil that retains a higher moisture level. Best grown in clumps to attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Great for planting beside a pond or stream. Like Wild Bergamot, the leaves of this Bee Balm also give off a sweet aroma. This plant has a clumping habit and spreads by rhizomes, making it a good choice for soils that need stabilizing.

We offer two other Mondarda species:

Spotted Bee Balm

Wild Bergamot

Ontario Hardiness Zone: 4 to 7 (Find out your Hardiness Zone here)
