It is Bee Balm season. This plant does great here in Wisconsin. It spreads well, you can divide easily and it brings in the hummingbirds. I have purple Monarda in front of the house and would not recomend it. It gets powdery mildew and does not have the appeal to the hummingbirds. Jacob's Cline red Bee Balm is the best choice by far. I bought two plants originally 3 years ago and now have 6 big patches(4 divided last year and now huge) and 2 small(just divided this year) The only drawback is a relatively short bloom time and it does spread a bit more than you may like.
