This shorter Monarda is a beauty! Rich hot pink flowers on stems that top out at only about 12 to 18 inches, and this beauty is mildew-resistant, too.

About the Monardas This is a hybrid of the famous American wildflower with the bright red crown-shaped flowers, a description of the large scarlet blooms everyone and every hummingbird loves.

There are other species, but our famous Monarda or Bee Balm is native from the far north all the way south to Georgia, it was first discovered by world famous plant explorer John Bartram during the colonial era. Since its a member of the mint family with fragrant foliage, Bee Balm was always a medicinal plant of the native Americans, and today adds wonderful color to perennial gardens and wildflower meadows. Its a strong-growing perennial that likes moisture, and will grow in sun or partial shade.

As with all Bee Balms, the bloom begins in mid-summer, and if you cut off spent flowers for about three weeks, you'll extend the blooming into fall.

      My Bee Balm grew and bloomed this year, but not very much or for very long. I'm hoping it just needs a little longer to get more established.

        Comments about American Meadows Bee Balm Grand Marshall:

        Purchased this and several other balms. Plants were healthy and well packaged. This is the first bee balm that has not died in my zone 9 area although it is not vigorous it is living and produced a few blooms during the heat of summer, if it makes through the winter I have high hopes for next spring.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
