Beebalm (monarda) is a summer-flowering plant from North America. There are about 15 species including both perennials and annuals, all of which come mostly from open and dry places like prairies. It belongs to the longest flowering plants of summer and its aromatic leaves would be used as a cheap substitute of bergamot for famous Earl Grey tea. We specialize solely in perennial monardas, mostly monarda didyma and monarda fistulosa and their hybrids.

BALMY™ PURPLE is the very first beebalm variety from the BALMY™ series developed by Scott Trees for Ball Horticultural Company in the USA. It is a cross between varieties Pink Lace® and GRANDE PARADE from 2008. It makes compact tufts with strong, upright stems holding rich purple pink flowers from late June until midsummer. Deciduous leaves are widely lance-shaped, deep green, and slightly undulated. Flowers are edible and fragrant leaves can be used in tea and other cold drinks. Patent no. PP25561 was issued in 2015. BALMY™ PURPLE was the original plant from which arose all future mutations called by their flower colours: Pink, Lilac, and Rose.

Monarda grows reliably in almost any well-drained, medium fertile soil, preferably in full sun. If forms dense clumps, and remains healthy unless overwatered – then foliage may be prone to powdery mildew. Hardiness guaranteed to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5), however as all other monardas this variety might possibly survive down to -34°C.
