Gardenview Scarlet beebalm grows to 4 feet tall and about 1 to 2 feet' wide. As part of an evaluation of beebalms held at the Chicago Botanic Garden, Gardenview Scarlet was found to have a consistently good growth habit with large 3-inch scarlet blossoms covering 80% to 100% of the plant for about 6 weeks in mid summer. It had fair to good mildew resistance and experienced no winter injury. Overall it received a good evaluation for planting in the Chicagoland area.
Beebalm grows in sunny or partially shady areas. If you gently rub your finger across the leaf, you'll be pleasantly surprised by its fragrance. Bright pompoms of flowers bloom in mid summer, and removing faded flowers will extend flowering. Beebalm is great for attracting bees and butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. It's easy to grow and adds a lot of color to your border. Cut back at the end of the summer to minimize powdery mildew.
