Pardon My Purple Bee Balm

MONARDA didyma PARDON MY Pardon My Purple PP22170 (Pardon My Purple Bee Balm) A petite monarda that’s easy to tuck into the front of your sunny border and combination containers.  Reaching just a foot tall at maturity, this compact selection forms a well-branched clump of deep green, glossy foliage.

From mid through late summer, fuchsia purple flowers sit just at the top of the foliage. Though the plant may be dwarf, the flowers are the same size as taller selections. They add a cool splash of color to the border in high summer. 

A Proven Winner perennial, it prefers rich, moist soil in full sun to part sun.
