"Bee You" Bee-True Bee Balm


Deep maroon buds that cover the lush, minty-basil-scented, dark green foliage open to show-stopping, electric violet-purple blooms.

Plant in well-draining soil, partial shade to full sun (6+ hours of sun daily), and keep soil consistently moist. Apply slow-release fertilizer in spring, deadhead spent flowers, and trim back in late fall or early spring.
