Bee Balm season is almost over. They grow forever and very tall without blooming. Then they explode into striking but quirky looking blooms–almost like the touseled head of a five year old boy who just awoke. True to their name the bees adore them. The hummingbirds loved the red Bee Balm.
The petals have fallen off the early bloomers (the majenta Bee Balm… you can see them in the background) and are starting to fall off the red. The pink was the last to bloom so hopefully I’ll have some pictures with the pink Bee Balm soon.
I will trim them back and see if I can get more blooms this season, but in the meantime, off to the nursery for me.
