Upscale™ 'Pink Chenille' Bee Balm Care
Select an area that receives full to partial sun for the Upscale™ 'Pink Chenille' Bee Balm. This perennial prefers rich soil that is moist but also allows water to drain. Bee Balm plants have medium to high water needs, so keep the plant hydrated, especially during a dry period. A layer of organic mulch will prevent the soil from drying out as fast while also supporting new growth. Apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring to help the Upscale™ 'Pink Chenille' Bee Balm start the growing season strong.
Remove spent flowers to encourage more blooms. Trim up to one-third of the growth after the flowers fade to encourage a more dense and full look and promote more flowers.
