Bee Balm, Monarda Mix (Monarda didyma) - 20 Seeds
Bee Balm, a US Native Wildflower, is popular in flower and herb gardens because it is easy to establish from Monarda seeds and nothing brings in the butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees like Monarda flowers. This beautiful mix of colors is very showy and will have everyone turning their heads. Attract hummingbirds and beneficial pollinators with aromatic leaves and frilly flower heads. You will get a mix of three in complementary colors—white, pink, purple or red. Blooms early to midsummer. A good choice for sunny back borders, and great companion to other sun-lovers like Shasta daisies. If deadheaded regularly, this mix will keep blooming late into summer. Every three or four years, you can divide the clumps. You can either spread them out and increase the size of your display or share some with a lucky gardening friend. Because of that spicy mint perfume, rabbits and deer tend not to bother Bee Balm.

Growing Monarda seeds is easy and rewarding! Sow seeds 1/16" deep directly in prepared areas in the spring when temperatures begin to warm. Spread the herb seeds evenly and rake into loose topsoil. Supplemental watering is suggested if spring rains are poor. Provide additional water until the plants reach 10 - 12 inches tall. Once established, Lemon Bergamot should reseed itself. Allow flower seeds to mature completely before mowing or cutting down. Since it's an annual, it is essential that the Purple Horsemint plant is allowed to reseed itself for the following year.
