Fireball Bee Balm 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 moist, well-drained soil. It is a mid- to late season bloomer for butterfly and hummingbird gardens. 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
Fireball 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.
