More Information

Description With 'Leading Lady Pink' bee balm (Monarda), the pollinators won't have to wait until late summer for their favorite flower to bloom! 'Leading Lady Pink' is one of the earliest blooming bee balms on the market, boasting bright pink flowers in early summer. Clusters of pink flowers are decorated with delicate spots, all of which guide pollinators to their sweet nectar. We're sure you'll love it almost as much as the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds do.

The Leading Lady series of bee balms from Proven Winners blooms earlier (and for longer) atop a tidier habit than other bee balms. It packs a lot of personality into a compact habit, perfect for small gardens and containers needing color and fragrance. This hard-working perennial repels deer, attracts pollinators, and keeps your garden low maintenance.

Nice plants

Love the pink bee balm. Came with the plant packaged well and in good shape. Planted the plants and they are blooming.

Love it.

Unbelievably hot this summer and the bee balm survived and bloomed.

Growing strong

I planted half my bee balm then got sick with covid. Two weeks later, the bee balm that was left in the little temporary cups were still alive. Both groups of bee balm (planted right away and planted after 2 weeks of sitting) are doing great. I know bee balm is a resilient plant, but I’m still impressed with the quality of plants I got from this online nursery
