Monarda Plants

The Monarda plant is more commonly referred to as Bee Balm. As you can guess by the name, this plant is highly attractive to honeybees, but is also a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds.


Monarda, pronounced mo-NAR-duh,  is fairly easy to grow and in some climates is considered invasive, just as mint can be, especially in the shade. Bee Balm is also considered a great companion plant to grow with tomatoes to improve their flavor, attracting beneficial pollinators and predatory insects that will do away with damaging garden pests like aphids.


Our potted Monarda plants for sale are guaranteed, read about it on our Satisfaction page. Most of our flowering plants ship according to our spring shipping schedule.
