Bee balm is a native to North America plant. It is quite aromatic. Flowers are abundant on sturdy stalks and are petite and tubular in shape making them attractive to hummingbires and other pollinators. Spreads readily so should be divided every 3 years. To keep plants bushier pinch off the stem tip new growth in spring to allow for more branching. Prone to powdery mildew so plant where there is lots of air flow to reduce the occurance.
