Monarda didyma ‘Purple Rooster’


Beebalm

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.365.270


Beebalm is a traditional favourite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly-coloured flowers through the summer months. This selection features royal purple flowers, arranged in large, shaggy heads. Foliage is delightfully fragrant, and significantly more resistant to powdery mildew than most older varieties. A favourite of both butterflies and hummingbirds. Beebalm spreads quickly: reduce clump size in early spring. Requires no staking even though it can reach up to 100cm. Flowers are edible. Bred by David Nedveck of The Flower Factory of Wisconsin.
