Monarda 'Pardon My Cerise'
Monarda 'Pardon My Cerise'. No room for the tall, bushy, traditional Bee Balm in your garden? Here is a petite selection thatís easy to tuck into the front of your sunny border and combination containers. Reaching just a little over a foot tall at maturity, this compact selection forms a bushy, well-branched clump of green, semi-glossy foliage. From mid through late summer, dark cherry pink flowers sit just at the top of the foliage. Though the plant may be dwarf, the flowers are the same size as taller selections, measuring a full 2 Ĺ - 3 inches across. They add a bright splash of color to the border in high summer. This new selection also offers good resistance to powdery mildew, a problem with many older Bee Balms. Just provide good air circulation, sunshine, and plenty of water and these plants will thrive!
