Bee Balm typically blooms in midsummer, but 'Leading Lady Razzberry' leads the way in early summer, flowering earlier and forming a more petite clump than other Bee Balm. This variety typically blooms from early summer into midsummer and grows just a foot tall. 'Leading Lady Razzberry' produces bright raspberry purple flowers on dark green leaves that have a purple cast and dark bracts. The blossoms have sweet nectar that is highly attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and honeybees and the aromatic foliage is naturally deer resistant.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Monarda '`Leading Lady Razzberry`'
Monarda can be found naturally along riverbanks and enjoys this rich, organic, moist soil. However, it will grow in average soil as well. Full sun is best, but light shade is tolerated. Plants tend to spread more quickly in the shade, however.
