Blaustrumpf "Blue Stocking" Bee Balm, Monarda didyma.

A traditional favourite 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.

Garden selections all have been bred from native North American wildflower species.

A favourite of both butterflies and hummingbirds. Foliage is delightfully fragrant. Flowers are edible!

Powdery mildew may be a problem in summer. Regular watering direct to the roots, will help to prevent this. Bee-balm spreads quickly: reduce clump size in early spring. Good heat tolerance.
