Description

From the Morden Breeding Program in Manitoba comes a new series of exceptionally hardy monardas. GRAND PARADEā„¢ Bee Balm produces a profusion of lavender-purple flowers atop mid-sized, very compact, upright plants from mid through late summer. They add a fun element to fresh flower bouquets. This cultivar exhibits very good mildew resistance.

Monarda is native to eastern North America, so it is easy to grow and it multiplies quickly. The flowers’ sweet nectar attracts scores of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden. The aromatic foliage smells like mint when crushed and is often used to flavor teas.
