Description

Make Way for this Royal Purple Bee Balm

Where do thirsty pollinators go when their reserves get low? Plant Monarda Sugar Buzz® 'Grape Gumball' and they will go straight to your garden. Royal purple flowers dance over the dark green foliage of this deer- and powdery mildew-resistant bee balm. Besides being a magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies, this astonishing perennial draws human eyes as well. Its petite yet vibrant blooms form a seamless layer of deep purple that nearly eclipses its dark green foliage. Perfect for patio containers and the middle of your sunny borders, Monarda Sugar Buzz® 'Grape Gumball' is compact yet so free-flowering.

Blooming in midsummer, this perennial creates a showstopping display of color and scent. The aroma comes not from the flowers, as you might expect, but from the leaves, which release a heavenly mint scent. Wow! could this perennial get any better at all? We don't think so.

Give Monarda Sugar Buzz® 'Grape Gumball' well-drained soil and plenty of water. Pamper it with organics the first season, then watch how carefree it becomes.
