Monarda x 'Purple Rooster'
[Bee Balm]
Size (ships bareroot) - 5.5" pot $6.95
Height Light
30 - 36 in. Sun Mid Summer Purple 4 - 9

True royal purple flowers and excellent mildew resistance. What more can you ask for from a bee balm.

Care: Monarda can be found naturally along riverbanks and enjoys this rich, organic, moist soil. However, it will grow in average soil as well. Full sun is best, but light shade is tolerated. Plants tend to spread more quickly in the shade, however. Most monardas multiply rapidly either by underground stems or self-sowing. In order to keep plants healthy and vigorous, they should be divided at least every three years in the spring. Deadheading spent blooms will prolong the bloom time. Very resistant to powdery mildew. The soil should also be kept consistantly moist; dry soil promotes powdery mildew.
