Red Bee Balm

Low-maintenance perennial delivers a splash of red in late summer, and its brilliant red, showy flowers attract hummingbirds. Its leaves emit a minty fragrance when crushed. Growing 3-4 ft. tall, Red Bee Balm is very easy care and exhibits good disease resistance. It's a great plant for borders, naturalized areas and cottage gardens. Bee Balm, native to the eastern United States, blooms in July-August. Grows best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 5-9.

Plants will be shipped at the proper planting time for your area of the country using the shipping timeframes outlined below. We continually monitor weather conditions for extreme hot or cold and adjust shipping schedules as needed. Due to hot weather conditions, we are unable to ship most plant items in July and August.
