A compact perennial with pastel pink flowers and foliage that smells like mint when crushed.
Beebalm is a traditional favourite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly coloured flowers through the summer months. This midsized selection from the SUGAR BUZZ™ Series has shaggy, pastel pink flowers. The foliage smells like mint when crushed. Displays above average resistance to powdery mildew. The more compact stature makes this useful in containers or tubs. A favourite of both butterflies and hummingbirds. Beebalm spreads quickly: reduce clump size in early spring. Garden selections all have been bred from native North American wildflower species. Flowers are edible. The SUGAR BUZZ® Series trademark is owned by Walters Gardens, Inc.
