Plant Features

Sugar Buzz® Grape Gumball Bee Balm Plants boasts large, fluffy blooms in a stunning array of dark purple with well-branched, dark green foliage that is second to none. This series is also powdery mildew resistant! Beebalm plants flourish on a wide range of soils but do their best with moist, well-drained soil. It is a mid-late season bloomer for butterfly and hummingbird gardens. Monarda can be planted under black oak trees. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid these plants.

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

Sugar Buzz Grape Gumball 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.
