Plant Features

Balmy™ Purple Bee Balm Plants boasts trademark fluffy blooms of vibrant purple that sit atop dark green foliage that is wonderfully aromatic with a mixture of basil and mint tones. This series extends the flowering season with earlier blooming, and it mildew resistant! Beebalm plants flourish on a wide range of soils but do their best with moist, well-drained soils. It is a mid- to late season bloomer for butterfly and hummingbird gardens.  Deer and rabbits tend to avoid Bee Balm.

Monarda Companion Plants: Achillea, Eupatorium, Grasses, Phlox, Salvia

Balmy Purple Monarda Care: Plants should be always kept well-watered. The dried flowers produce a fruit that wild birds enjoy, so don’t cut back the plants back to the ground till late winter or early spring. Early spring is also a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.

Beautiful blooms

Plant came in great condition and after 2 weeks already blooming! Great product from a great company.

Great plants!

These plants arrived well packaged and happy. They are really taking off since I’ve planted them. I’m excited to see them bloom later this summer

Excellent Plants

Plants arrived in excellent condition as always! Good sized plants, too. I can't wait to see them bloom and I look forward to their assistance with pollination. Grow Joy is the absolute best & their packaging is superior. Quality just can't be beat!

From Sherri | September 17, 2021

Wonderful plant

Plant arrived in beautiful condition and began thriving immediately upon transplant. Did seem susceptible to powdery mildew, but that's on me, not GrowJoy. -) So water only at soil level and enjoy this beauty.

Great Plant

I got a few of these to establish before you sold out and am I ever glad. They are really healthy and will be a great addition to my bee and butterfly space. Thanks!
