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 ?

RE: Monarda in Bloom

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!


RE: Monarda in Bloom

Very nice! and your garden looks immaculate and so well cared for.

RE: Monarda in Bloom

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.
