Fireball Monarda Plants offer a compact variety that produces bright fiery-red flowers blooms in summer atop deep green, aromatic foliage. An excellent choice for borders and cut flower arrangements. Beebalm plants flourish on a wide range of soils but do their best with moderately moist to wet soils. They will tolerate some drought once established. These nectar rich flowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The flowers also produce a fruit that wild birds enjoy, so don’t deadhead the plants! Powdery Mildew can be an issue. Monarda can be planted under black oak trees. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid these plants.
Companion Planting: Achillea, Eupatorium, Grasses, Phlox, Salvia

Comment: Hard to judge. This plant has been doing well until dog days of 100+ heat x 10 days. No flowers, lots of leaves 4 weeks out.
