Bradbury’s Monarda, or Monarda braduriana, grows to only 12-18” tall and is the perfect way to help the pollinator population in your small or large garden. Like all Bee Balm, it is a pollinator magnet and will attract a wide variety of pollinators to your backyard. This perennial will multiply each year, eventually creating a carpet of light pink blooms in the mid-season garden. The foliage remains green throughout the season, offering texture and color into the late fall.

Low maintenance and easy to grow, Bradbury’s Monarda grows in full sun to partial shade and tolerates almost any garden soil.
