Description

PETITE DELIGHT® beebalm grows 12 to 18 inches tall and about 12 inches wide in sunny or partially shady areas. If you gently rub your finger across the leaf, you'll be pleasantly surprised by its fragrance. Bright pompons of lavender-rose flowers bloom in mid summer, and removing faded flowers will result in weeks of flowering. In an evaluation of beebalms at Chicago Botanic Garden, PETITE DELIGHT® was found to have 2-inch flowers over two-thirds of the plant, and it had fair mildew resistance. Overall it received a fair-to-good evaluation for planting in the Chicagoland area.

PETITE DELIGHT® is especially suited to smaller-scaled gardens or in the front of mixed border locations. Beebalm is great for attracting bees and butterflies to your garden. It's easy to grow and adds a lot of color to your border. Cut back after flowering, and maintain soil moisture during dry spells.
