Also called Eastern Bee Balm, Monarda bradburiana is a member of the Lamiaceae, or mint family. With pink to white flowers, sometimes with purple spots, Bradbury’s Bee Balm makes a wonderful perennial for a pollinator garden. Hummingbirds and butterflies delight in their flowers and will visit daily. Some Monardas are susceptible to powdery mildew however this special bee balm is quite resistant.
