monarda-snowwhite.jpg (22592 bytes) Snow White Monarda is the oldest variety we grow.  It was introduced in 1955 and has remained the best white Bee Balm we have ever grew.  The dainty pure white flowers are about half the size of the reds we offer, but Snow White is just as showy. Being an older variety it is not as resistant to powdery mildew so it is important that plants do not become stressed from lack of water. Give the plants a good deep saoking during dry spells and apply a good layer of mulch to keep roots from drying out. 

Plant in full sun and provide a rich well drained soil. Plants can be grown in partial shade but will cause flowering to 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, dry soils promotes powdery mildew, a fungal problem common in Monardas.  Deadheading will promote longer flowering.  Plants spread rapidly by underground stems and need to be divided every three years to keep them looking their best.
