Monarda ‘Blue Stocking’


Beebalm

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.365.060


(='Blaustrumpf') Beebalm is a traditional favorite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly-coloured flowers through the summer months. This selection features bright violet-purple flowers, arranged in large, shaggy heads. Foliage is delightfully fragrant. Powdery mildew may be a problem in summer. Regular watering will help to prevent this. A favourite of both butterflies and hummingbirds. Beebalm spreads quickly: reduce clump size in early spring. Garden selections all have been bred from native North American wildflower species. Good heat tolerance. Flowers are edible.
