This eastern US native wildflower naturally grows in woodland areas and along stream beds, but it's just as happy in a garden! Commonly known as Bee Balm, Monarda didyma is known for its fragrant foliage and unique, scarlet red pom-pom flowers that bloom in summer.
Monarda didyma Bee Balm spreads by rhizomes, so it is best planted in an area that can be naturalized, or in a large container. It can be cut back to freshen up if the foliage becomes untidy.
Monarda didyma Bee Balm is a magnet for butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. It is a must-have for pollinator, cottage, and native gardens!
