Tips for Growing Bee Balm

Bee Balm (Mondarda) is a showy and vigorous old-fashioned garden perennial that blooms in summer. Bee Balm is, as the name suggests, “bee friendly,” deer resistant and will attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden. The varieties we carry are highly resistant to powdery mildew.

  • Plant Bee Balm in full sun (or part shade in hot summer climates).
  • This plant enjoys moist and fertile garden soil.
  • Mulch and water regularly. Water Bee Balm if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week.
  • Fertilize once annually in fall or spring with a top dressing mixture of Yum Yum Mix and compost.
  • Divide the plants in fall every few years to keep them vigorous.

If you have particularly challenging gardening conditions (hot humid summers, periodic drought, or cold winters--as low as USDA zone 4), we recommend planting Mondarda fistulosa or Monarda 'Peter's Purple' (USDA zone 6) which grow easily in most soil types, including clay. The cold hardy zone 4 varieties are excellent for fall planting.
