Description

This wildflower Bergamot has very attractive and full lilac colored flowers, and aromatic foliage! It is native to prairie and savanna communities, blooming from July through to September. As it is a wildflower, these plants are able to withstand adverse conditions like poor soil, or drought.

Bee Balm are an ideal food for pollinators, and especially humming birds! Each flower is comprised of multiple long tubular flowers that easily hold nectar. Bee Balm plants are easy to grow, and are not fussy. Plants form large, tidy clumps, slowly growing larger each year, but not becoming invasive and never self seeding around the garden.

Height: Average 4 feet, can vary from 3-5 feet (mix)

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Location: Sun

Seeds per pack: 25

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. These seeds require a period of cold. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
