Scarlet Bee Balm, (Monarda Didyma Panorama Red Shades)
Perennial, USDA Zones: 4 - 9. 

Over 20 seeds per package.  

Scarlet Bee Balm is popular in flower gardens because it is easy to establish from Monarda Didyma seeds and nothing brings in the butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees like Monarda flowers.  Monarda Didyma is a perennial herb known as Bergamot, Scarlet Monarda, Oswego Tea and Crimson Beebalm. 

Scarlet Bee Balm is a culinary herb that is very showy and will have everyone turning their heads.  It makes a great cut flower, as well!  The flowers are edible and the mint-scented leaves are used in teas or in potpourri. 

Directly sow Monarda seeds outdoors in the spring when temperatures begin to warm.  Lightly cover the flower seeds and keep them moist until germination.  Until plants reach 10 - 12 inches tall, irrigate if rains are poor. Cooler soil temperature at night aids germination and Hummingbirds enjoy these beautiful flowers.
