Beebalm is a traditional favourite for the perennial border, with a striking display of richly-coloured flowers through the summer months. Award winning Gardenview Scarlet' features tubular, two-lipped, rose red flowers borne in dense, globular, terminal heads (like unkempt mop-heads) atop square stems rising to 3' tall. Each flower head is subtended by (rests upon) a whorl of showy, red-tinged, leafy bracts. Long summer bloom period. Toothed, aromatic leaves can be used for tea and in salads. Attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, particularly when massed.The flowers are excellent for cutting. Beebalm spreads quickly: reduce clump size in early spring. Good heat tolerance. Flowers are edible. Resistant to powdery mildew. Provide plants with good air circulation to help combat fungal leaf diseases.
