Super deep pink to red petals emerge from an even deeper red center on this perennial that is a magnet for all types of pollinators and is loved by hummingbirds as well. The fragrant, dark green foliage contrasts nicely with the vibrant colored blooms on a plant that reaches a height of 15 to 18 inches with a spread of 12 to 15 inches. Plant this long season bloomer where you can enjoy its beautiful flowers, minty fragrance, and the many interesting creatures it will attract. 

This low maintenance perennial has a naturally rounded growing habit and is highly resistant to powdery mildew disease. It is unpalatable to deer or small herbivores and is drought tolerant once established. An amazing choice for a wildflower garden, perennial garden, mass planting, walkway, pathway or patio planting and grown in a pot or container. Winter hardy in zones 5 to 9. Bee Balm grown in pots or containers would need to be planted in garden soil for the winter where temperatures fall below freezing for an extended period of time and repotted in spring. Alternatively, the pots or containers could be stored indoors for the winter in a cool, but sunny area that is above freezing. Native to North America. 

Bee-You® Bee Happy Bee Balm Care

Bee Balm prefers an area with full sun but is accepting of partial shade. Grows best in average to rich, well-drained garden soil but accepts a wide range of soil types and likes a slightly acidic to neutral pH. 

Bee Balm may be deadheaded to encourage new blooms and to help create a bushier plant. Cut back passed foliage to a few inches above ground in late fall. May be divided every 2 to 3 years to maintain the plant's vigor.

Bee-You® Bee Happy Bee Balm Spacing

Bee Balm should be spaced approximately 12 to 16 inches apart if grown as a mass planting, in the perennial garden, a wildflower garden, patio, walkway or pathway planting or if grown in pots or containers.

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.
