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.


Companion Planting: 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.

Comment: 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.
