Bee Balm Seeds

Monarda didyma

Every year in June and July Panorama Mix bee balm produces tousled whorls of semi-double flowers in intense shades of pink, salmon, red, scarlet and crimson. Butterflies and hummingbirds find the flowers irresistible. Bee balm is an excellent cut flower.

Leaves are mint scented and used to make Oswego Tea, which was commonly used in the 18th century as an affordable alternative to the highly taxed, imported black tea. Panorama Mix bee balm plants are extremely mildew resistant, grow to 3 ft. tall and thrive in full sun or part shade. Winter hardy to zone 3.

Growing Pano­rama Mix Bee Balm Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Bee Balm Seeds: Sow seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Light helps bee balm seeds to germinate. Kept at 60-70° F., seedlings emerge in 14-21 days. Transplant bee balm plants into garden 1-2 ft. apart.

Grow Bee Balm: Plant in full sun in mild climates, afternoon shade is preferred in hot summer areas. Bee Balm plants spread quickly, are not invasive. Provide regular to ample moisture. Bee Balm plants will be longer-lived in cold winter climates.

Bee balm is divided every 3 to 4 years in the spring or early fall. Discard any dead central plant material and transplant each small division 1½ to 2 ft. apart. Widely adapted, bee balm is among the absolute best perennials for drawing hummingbirds into the garden. Blooms also attract butterflies and honey bees, and are excellent cut flowers. Bee balm plants are rabbit and deer resistant.
