Monarda Panorama Mix

Great! This is a beautiful plant. The flowers actually seem to change colors after they open and last a long time.

Easy to grow favorite of bees and hummingbirds

These seeds were easy to start. I used a period of cold dry stratification (seeds in fridge) before planting in starting mix and following my usual seed starting routine. The germination rate was fantastic, I had many to plant out. They grew to full size and a few even bloomed the first year. While deer and other wildlife ate some seedlings and perennials around them, nothing ate the bee balm. I was so pleased with their success I bought more seeds to start and plant this year.

Awesome pollinator attractor

I have 't planted the new purchase yet due to record cold temperatures in Michigan ( it's still winter). I. Have grown monarda before and I love the plant . It really attracts bees and butterflies to my garden. It's an awesome fill in for my vegetable garden.
