Clearly obvious why they call it Beebalm... and the first time I'm seeing no powdery mildew!
That typically means a good year w/o drought and/or no leaf injuries (like hail).
Nice aren't they ?
I'm so jealous! My bee balm turned to crap real quick because of that darn horsemint larve that eat all the petals. I hacked them down to the ground and am keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have an infestation again next year!
Anyway yours are gorgeous!
Beautiful! One of my favorite plants for looks and odor!
Very nice! and your garden looks immaculate and so well cared for.
I am envious as well. I have complained lots of times in the past about my stand of Monarda. They flower for too short a time. (probably not enough sun). But I love the smell of the foliage.
