More Information

Description 'Leading Lady Plum' is truly the leading lady of bee balms, blooming earlier and for longer and growing tidier than other bee balms! Its frilly magenta blooms arrive early summer and continue into midsummer. If you're looking to bring more pollinators to your garden, bee balm's sweet nectar is loved by honeybees, butterflies, and hummingbirds alike! But don't worry, while pollinators love it, deer stay away. 'Leading Lady Plum' and its fragrant flowers and foliage make a great addition to containers and small gardens. This dwarf variety is perfect for those looking for an easier to maintain bee balm as it grows naturally in a tidy, space-saving clump. Add this bright purple beauty to your landscape, and pollinators will thank you! Details Botanical name: Monarda hybrid 'Leading Lady Plum' Patent #: USPP 26,447 Common name: Bee balm, Horsemint, Bergamot, Oswego Tea Zone: 4 - 8 Sun exposure: Sun (6+ Hours), Part Sun (4-6 Hours) Height x width: 12" X 15" Flower color: Magenta Foliage color: Green Bloom season: Early-Mid summer Uses: Accent, Container gardening, Edging, Erosion control or embankment, Ground cover, Massing, Rain garden, Rock garden, Under planting, Waterside. How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in any soil; readily tolerates wet soils. Soil pH not crucial. Light: Full sun to partial shade Water: Average to abundant, depending on the weather. Soil should be kept moist to combat powdery mildew. Spacing: Space at least 18-24" from other plants; good air circulation encourages healthy, vigorous growth. Fertilizing: Little needed. If desired, apply a granular garden fertilizer in early spring, just as the soil begins to thaw. Winterizing: No special care needed. Any old stems that persist after winter can be cut back in spring. Maintenance & Pruning: Remove spent blooms for better performance and looks. While not imperative, it results in a neater, showier plant.

Bee Balm Happy

Bee Balm doing well. Since I ordered late, I might not get flowers this season but at least roots will be well established. I have ordered other plants and doing equally well.

Purple Bee Balm

Love the color and the full flower head. Can’t wait to see it multiply and accent my Fine Line Buckthorn. The height is perfect, dwarf in size.
