Bee Balm ‘Grape Gumball’
Royal purple flowers dance over the dark green foliage of this deer- and powdery mildew-resistant Bee Balm. Its petite yet vibrant blooms form a seamless layer of deep purple that nearly eclipses its dark green foliage. Perfect for patio containers and the middle of your sunny borders, ‘Grape Gumball’ is compact yet so free-flowering! Blooming in midsummer, this perennial creates a showstopping display of color and scent. The aroma comes not from the flowers, as you might expect, but from the leaves, which release a heavenly mint scent!
