The Monarda ‘Bee-You, Bee-Happy’ cultivar of Wild Bergamot or Bee Balm, is our favorite among the Bee-You series of Monarda with its ample flowers and resistance to deer. Deep red flowers open from magenta buds, that blanket the plant for months of color all summer. Thriving in almost any soil type, it forms 12″ -15″ tall clumps, shorter than other 2″ – 4″ Monarda, but is still a prolific self-seeder. The small size of the Bee-You line make them ideal for border gardens or containers, keeping them compact and tidy. The blooms, present mid-summer to fall, is covered in highly attractive blooms attractive to pollinators and hummingbirds, particularly butterflies and bees. Plant this herbaceous perennial in large groupings for an attractive display of color in sunny borders and containers, as they perennialize well, reliably returning year after year with even more and bigger blooms.
