Also known as bergamont, beebalm is a Western native wildflower very attractive to pollinators, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Flowers and leaves are edible and are used medicinally in teas and salads. Tall plants reach 3’ and make attractive additions to low-water flower gardens.
How to grow it:
Start indoors up to 12 weeks before last frost. Germination can be spotty and take up to 3 weeks. Transplant at 24” apart. Alternatively, sow in place in early fall, raking seeds in lightly in a weed free location.
