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.
