Product Details

Product Details

The Monarda 'Raspberry Wine' flowers are wine red and irresistible to hummingbirds. Plants bloom long and hard and show excellent resistance to powdery mildew. A White Flower Farm introduction in 1992.

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. Under these conditions, they are vigorous to the point of invasiveness, perhaps past it. Hummingbirds are drawn to the flowers.

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.

Pollinator party

One year after planting this is over four feet tall and it is party central for local pollinators. We now get daily visits from a hummingbird, and I have seen every type of bee—bumbles and honeybees and natives. Butterflies, even a couple visits from a hummingbird moth! Right now on a sunny afternoon there must be at least two dozen bees feeding. I have a garden full of ornamental flowers but this one is the top hit. Hasn’t needed staking yet or really much attention at all. Highly recommended.

Third Year was the charm

Planted these in 2019. Hardly any blooms but the leaves and stems proliferated throughout the flower bed and needed to be thinned out. This year, the stalks have grown to over 6’ tall and the flowers are gorgeous!

Bought this based on all the great reviews and planted it in the front year. Unfortunately, there were no flowers the first season. The plant is extremely invasive and stems needed support to keep them upright. it was moved to another location in the back yard.

Hummingbirds love this and so do I!

Bigger and better in 2nd and 3rd years! I have several varieties of bee balm, but this color is my fave! Pollinators and hummingbirds attracted to it, and it looks so unique and interesting in the garden. They grew much taller than I anticipated the 2nd year, so I think I will have to relocate towards the middle or back of the garden. They are showstoppers though and will shine anywhere. We had a lot of humidity and rain in mid summer and I lost all of my monarda to powdery mildew. I cut this variety to the ground and it came right back a few weeks later! For furture reference, during periods of high humidity I would suggest spraying them weekly with neem oil or baking soda mixture. They're worth the extra effort for the joy they provide.

Solid Performer

I have had this Bee Balm for several years. It is a reliable performer and I love the color. The Hummingbirds and Butterflies love it as well. I have several varieties of Bee Balm in my flower garden and this is the backbone of the garden. I highly recommend it.

Latin Name Pronunciation: mo-nar'duh     

  • 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.
