USDA Zone: 4-9

Beebalm is a traditional favourite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly coloured flowers through the summer months. This midsized selection from the SUGAR BUZZ™ Series has shaggy, lavender-blue flowers. The foliage smells like mint when crushed. Displays above average resistance to powdery mildew. The more compact stature makes this useful in containers or tubs. 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. Flowers are edible.
