Bee Balm Lambada Seeds

Bee Balm Lambada Seeds

Monarda hybrida

Item #1085

Tender Perennial. Bee balm, also known as Monarda, is covered with unique, lovely lavender-pink flower clusters that attract butterflies, hummingbirds and bees to the garden. We chose this variety because it is more tolerant to powdery mildew and dry soil conditions than other varieties of bee balm. Lambada is a tender perennial, and may not overwinter in all areas. Plants bloom quickly so it can be grown as an annual for a splash of summer and fall color. Pretty in a mixed bouquet of cut flowers and in wildflower gardens. Grown as an annual, but perennial in USDA zones 5-9.
Deer resistant.
