New Multicolored Bee Balm
by Charlie Nardozzi
Bee balm (Monarda didyma) is known as a widely adapted perennial flower that features red, white, or lavender flowers that butterflies and hummingbirds love. A new selection from England adds a unique, two-toned flower color to the choices.
Beauty of Cobham bee balm (Monarda didyma) has multi-tiered pink flowers that contrast beautifully with its purple bracts and purple-tinged foliage. This Royal Horticultural Society award winner grows 2 to 3 feet tall and is hardy in USDA zones 4 to 9.
