Plant Information

40” tall x 18” wide. If you’re trying to add more native, pollinator-friendly perennials to your garden or meadow, the intoxicating fragrance and nectar-rich qualities of ‘Beebop’ monarda should put it at the top of your list. Excellent for sandy, well-drained soils, this early blooming relative of traditional garden bee balms blooms early and differently with small, two lipped spotted flowers above more showy pink/white bracts. It is rich in thymol, an antiseptic and fungicide, and extremely powdery mildew resistant. ‘Beebop’ can be a relatively short-lived perennial, but the longevity of the blooms and bracts makes it really stand out in native gardens. Give ‘Beebop’ a sunny position where its mid to small size can still make an impact – along meadow pathways or near the front of a flower border, and cut back severely after flowering to encourage new foliage growth.

Q & A

Plant With These:

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).
