Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
Bee-You™ Series of Monardas
Bees love them. Growers love them. These new bee balms are mildew free, covered in flowers, the perfect size and available in colors to bring any outdoor space to life. Brought to us by AB-Cultivars, the Bee-You series is impressing bee balm lovers all over the globe. Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds can’t resist their sweet nectar and fragrance. Many selections have deep maroon or purple bracts that make the flower colors appear even deeper and more enticing. Attract much needed pollinators and feed your soul with these beautiful, contained, carefree bee balms.
Deep, rosy-coral flowers open from magenta buds and completely cover the plant for months of bright color that will style your outdoor space and beckon you outside. Mix Bee-Merry with other pollinator friendly plants like the Butterfly™ Series of coneflowers, ‘Black Truffle’ cardinal flower and ornamental grasses like ‘Prairie Munchkin’ little blue stem for soothing color combinations.
