Bee Balm is an excellent choice to attract Bumblebees and Honeybees to the garden. They can be planted in areas of full sunlight, and make a great backdrop plant. Monarda plants average a height of about 18 to 36 inches tall, with the exception of the Wild Bergamot, which can grow to a height of up to 48 inches tall.
You might notice that Bee Balm flowers are often times planted in insectaries, butterfly gardens, zoos and even parks. The large 2 inch flowers bloom in an array of various colors, depending on the variety that is grown. Our Bee Balm seed collection below offers 4 varieties to choose from, including Panorama Shades, Spotted Horsemint, Wild Bergamot and Lemon Mint.
