Monarda 'Grape Gumball' (Bee Balm)

Thumbnail Photo


This brand new series of SUGAR BUZZ� Monardas is perfectly suited to the middle of the flower border. In midsummer, 'Grape Gumball' forms a solid dome of vibrant magenta, 2-2.5� flowers on strong, well-branched stems. The dark green foliage forms an upright clump that will fill out containers nicely but won�t run all over the garden. It displays above average resistance to powdery mildew.

Monarda is native to eastern North America, so it is easy to grow and it multiplies quickly. The flowers' sweet nectar attracts scores of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden. The aromatic foliage smells like mint when crushed and is often used to flavor teas.
