Monarda Pink Lace is an exciting
new Bee Balm with a nice compact, tidy growth habit. Plants are
only 16 inches tall making them ideal for planting at the front
of the border or even in pots. Flowers are a brilliant shade of
pink that will attract the attention of any hummingbird or butterfly
who passes through the garden. As with all other types of Monarda,
Pink Lace is very easy to grow.
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 plants every three years to keep
them healthy and vigorous.
