Bergamot, Bee Balm
Zone 3 - 9
Produces masses of clear wine-red flowers and raspberry-coloured buds. Good mildew resistance. Excellent upright form with lots of branching. I have this in the garden and find it to be very long flowering with some of the largest blooms. HEIGHT: 80-100 cm SPREAD: 60-75 cm
Jewel of the mid-summer garden. Large heads of tubular flowers atop upright stems. Blooms for weeks and weeks mid-to-late summer. Always alive with bees and butterflies and frequently visited by hummingbirds. Bee Balm is wonderfully aromatic and its leaves and flowers can be used to make tea. Very easily grown in sun to partial shade in average soil. Deep watering and good air circulation are important to preventing mildew in these plants.
