Flowering from late spring until late summer, the Bee-Mine™ Pink Bee Balm is a sure winner for providing long-season color. Also known as Monarda didyma 'Balbeemin', this bee balm produces stunning clusters of electric pink flowers above its pointed green foliage. A maximum height of 18 inches makes this perennial ideal for borders and containers alike. 

The Bee-Mine™ Pink Bee Balm is a joy to grow with its impressive disease resistance and pollution tolerance. Furthermore, both deer and rabbits leave it alone, making it a good choice for a rural or wooded location. It has an upright habit that keeps the flowers standing proud, whether left on the plant or cut for a vase.  Bee-Mine™ is winter hardy down to zone 4 and perhaps most effective when planted as a group.

Bee-Mine™ Pink Bee Balm Care

The Bee-Mine™ Pink Bee Balm thrives in full sun but can also be grown in partial shade. It prefers a fertile, moist and well-drained soil. Water well for the first growing season to help the plant establish. Mature Bee-Mine™ can tolerate some drought but performs best in moist soil. Although not strictly necessary, a balanced fertilizer can be applied sparingly in spring to give it a boost.

Removing faded flowers will help promote new blooms to form and help keep a tidy appearance. Cut back spent growth to ground level after the first frost, and mulch to protect the roots.

Bee-Mine™ Pink Bee Balm Spacing

Over time the Bee-Mine™ Pink Bee Balm will reach 15 to 18 inches tall and 14 to 16 inches wide. A spacing of 18 to 20 inches is recommended to provide good air circulation around plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
