Product Details

Product Details

You may imagine fluttery pink fringe edging a small, dark purple cushion when contemplating the flower head of compact Monarda didyma 'Pink Lace.' Its dark red stems reach 16″ tall and are well branched and upright, spreading outward as the plant matures. A great choice for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to gardens with limited space. Place 'Pink Lace' near the front of a border, with Sedum 'Matrona,' Salvia 'May Night,' or Geranium 'Rozanne' at its feet. The leaves release the usual minty pungency when touched. PP 18,367

This North American genus has several species, all of which share tartly fragrant foliage and the square stems that typify members of the Mint family. The late-summer flower heads are hemispheres of tubular blooms in brilliant colors. Plants thrive in full sun or partial shade and evenly moist soil (which helps avoid mildew).

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

It is Lovely

This bee balm is a lovely color and blooms for weeks. I planted it in an area that has an ant hill where some plants die. This bee balm seems happy and stands sturdily upright in all weather. it cohabits with the ants so far! i particularly enjoy the long bloom time.

A great addition to the Monarda family

A great plant, grows compactly and flowers steadily. Foliage remains green and fragrant even late in the season. Drought tolerant and mildew resistant.

  • Choose a location in full sun or partial shade with moisture-retentive soil. In dry conditions, Bee Balm is susceptible to powdery mildew. 
  • For potted varieties, plant the crown at soil level. For bareroot varieties, plant with the old stems pointing up. Fan out the runners horizontally and cover them with just ¼" of soil.
  • Mulch plants in spring and irrigate during summer dry spells. Plants spread rapidly. Divide every year or two in spring to keep them in check.
