Leading Lady Amethyst Bee Balm


Bee balm is usually a midsummer bloomer , but Leading Lady flowers earlier than most bee balm. This variety typically blooms from early summer into midsummer and grows just a foot tall. Leading Lady produces bright amethyst flowers on dark green leaves that have a purple cast and dark bracts. Sometimes Bee Balm can be known to spread too much in gardens but Leading Lady is reported to be better behaved in the garden and doesn't spread as much. The blossoms have sweet nectar that is highly attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and honeybees and the aromatic foliage is naturally deer resistant. At maturity, Leading Lady gets 10-14" tall and 28" wide.
