Monarda didyma 'Snow White'

Bee Balm

This bushy, 2- to 4-foot-tall plant wears many hats -- from tea herb to cut flower to bee, hummingbird and butterfly treat. Its 4-inch-long leaves' fragrance blends mint and basil. Northern and western gardeners have the greatest success with this moisture-lover. Southern, eastern, and midwestern gardeners must fight mildew. A vigorous spreader, Bee Balm (also known as Horsemint and Oswego Tea), is well-suited to the meadow garden. Cut back after flowering and divide every 2 to 3 years. Sold in containers during the growing season.
