Bee Balm ‘Purple Rooster’
This selection features royal purple flowers, arranged in large, shaggy heads. Foliage is delightfully fragrant, and significantly more resistant to powdery mildew than most older varieties. A favorite of both butterflies and hummingbirds. Beebalm spreads quickly: reduce clump size in early spring. Requires no staking even though it can reach up to 40 inches. Flowers are edible.
