Beebalm is a traditional favourite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly-coloured flowers through the summer months. This selection features bright scarlet-red 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. Garden selections all have been bred from native North American wildflower species. Flowers are edible.
