Bee Balm, Bergamot 'Blue Moon' Sugar Buzz

Monarda didyma

  • Butterflies can’t resist the bold flower colors
  • Dark green, mildew-resistant leaves
  • Mid-sized clump perfect for the middle of the border
  • Great cut flower for fresh bouquets

Interesting Notes

Well-suited to the middle of the flower border. All colors in this series are similar in size, bloom time and vigor, making them easy for growers to schedule. These vigorous cultivars will fill out a container nicely with their dark green, mildew-resistant foliage, but won’t overrun the garden. Lavender blue flowers are held by attractive purple bracts. A breakthrough, shorter height for this color.
