Monarda didyma 'Cambridge Scarlet' (Bee Balm 'Cambridge Scarlet')

Monarda didyma 'Cambridge Scarlet' (Bee Balm  'Cambridge Scarlet')

No herb, flower, or perennial garden should be without Bee Balm. Perhaps no plant is more loved by humming birds than this one. When it blooms with round red clusters adorned with red trumpet petals the hummers busily visit each bloom collecting nectar. Not just good for bees, butterflies, and humming birds the flower petals of Monarda are edible for us as well, delicious sweet lemon minty when added to salads and beverages, the leaves can be used for tea as well.
Monarda is part of the mint family and will spread, give it some room, divide every other year to control spreading. Bee Balm is very susceptible to powdery mildew, to prevent infection plant in sunny areas and try to avoid overhead watering.
