Bee Balm, Monarda Balmy Purple
Bee Balm, Bee Balm, Bee Balm, how we love you so. Blooming from mid-summer to late fall and growing about a foot tall, this gorgeous polinator heaven grows tiers of flower one out of another out of another and this sucker LOVES WATER. Pretty great fit for a rainforest don’t you think? Loving normal to clay soils, make sure to go through and thin the stalks to encourage airflow, helping prevent mildew. And don’t forget this is a member of the mint family so it will spread and it’s tough and it will come back year after year.
