Description

Prairie Gypsy bee balm (Monarda ‘Prairie Gypsy’) has lavender-pink flowers on 2-foot stems that also feature aromatic foliage. This hybrid of the native Monarda bradburiensis is a butterfly and hummingbird attractant but is not so beloved by deer. Place 'Prairie Gypsy' in full sun in moderately fertile, moist soil with space between this plant and others to decrease the incidence of powdery mildew. Once established, this plant is more drought-tolerant.
