More details: Bee Balm (monarda) is one of our favorite perennials. It is so carefree! It loves the sunshine and the flowers smell amazing and herbaceous. Bee balm loves and requires full sun. It is a perennial, meaning it will grow back year after year for most areas of the U.S. You can pick off the flowers and dry them for potpourri. Bees absolutely love this plant, hence the name! They love to pollinate this plant. It is a perfect addition to any pollinator, perennial, or wildflower garden!
