Beebalm is a traditional favourite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly-coloured flowers through the summer months. This more compact selection features purple flowers, arranged in large, shaggy heads, an ideal size for the middle of a sunny border. Foliage is delightfully fragrant. Good powdery mildew resistance. A favourite of both butterflies and hummingbirds. Beebalm spreads quickly: reduce clump size in early spring. Garden selections all have been bred from native North American wildflower species. Good heat tolerance. Flowers are edible.
