Monarda Blue Stocking - purple Bee BalmMonarda Blue Stocking's name is a little misleading- the flowers are by no means considered to be in the blue range, they are however a very nice shade of violet-purple that is unique in Bee Balms. The nectar rich blossoms are a magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies who literally zoom in and out of the garden once they discover the plants.  Blue Stocking  has proven to be more heat and drought tolerant than other forms of Monarda and stands up well even it miserable humidity.  The foliage has that same sweet mint smell that is adored by gardeners who are familiar with Bee Balm. Very easy to grow and highly recommended.

Plant in full sun and provide a rich well drained soil. Plants can be grown in partial shade but  flowering will decline. Fertilize in early spring with a top dressing of composted manure and bone meal. Liquid feed once in the summer with fish emulsion or a compost tea.  Provide plants with extra water during prolonged dry spells. Deadheading will promote longer flowering.  Divide Monarda plnats every three years to keep them healthy and vigorous.
