A brilliant addition to late summer gardens. Butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees flock to these edible flowers. Leaves and flowers are used for tea.
Bee Balm is a self-seeding annual that tolerates a wide variety of soils. Choose a site with full sun to partial shade. Tolerates low to moderate moisture.
Direct sow seed outdoors in fall for germination the next spring or sow in spring after the last frost date. Seed can also be started indoors 4-6 weeks prior to transplanting outdoors. Sow seeds 6-8" apart on the soil surface and press lightly to settle. Seeds will sprout in 10-20 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 18-24" apart.
Flowers and leaves are traditionally used in teas, potpourri and balms. Harvest in 80-90 days after planting.
Dry and store plants in a cool dark place.
Bee Balm seed matures late summer-fall. Seed is ready to harvest when brown and dry. Store seeds in a cool, dry place. Seeds are viable for 2 years.
