OTHER: Spotted Bee Balm is a unique species of Monarda that is native to the eastern United States’ prairies & coastal plains. The plants are well adapted to sandy soils & periods of drought. The plants form neat clumps that are spread by runners, but it is not at all considered invasive or aggressive. They are deer resistant, & will also grow well in containers.
This Bee Balm is an herb with very showy flowers & a delightful fragrance similar to that of Oregano. Spotted Bee Balm blooms in upright spikes of nectar filled flowers that are an important source for honey bees, bumble bees, butterflies, & more. It has an wonderfully long bloom period of April – August. They also make a wonderful fragrant cut flower.

I won't be starting these until spring so all I can say is I received what I ordered, seed quantities were good, delivery was timely.

Seeds arrived timely. They were cold stratified for 4 weeks and planted in optimal conditions with organic seed starter/coir mix. Started 6 cells with 4-6 seeds in each. Germination was not good at 0%. I have vipar lights, seeds mats, and thermos. No reason why they shouldn't have sprouted. My other bee balm varieties all grew lovely, but these cells stayed blank. Disappointing given all the time and care given.
