Beebalm is a traditional favourite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly-coloured flowers through the summer months. This selection features bright brilliant red flowers, arranged in large, shaggy heads. Foliage is delightfully fragrant, and significantly more resistant to powdery mildew than most older varieties. 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.
