Bee Balm, Oswego Tea, Horsemint. Originally from the Eastern US this stunning Native American herb produces red and purplish whorled flowers which attract numerous bees and butterflies. The leaves have a subtle citrus flavor which make a soothing digestive tea reminiscent of Earl Grey. The plant enjoys a rich garden soil, plenty of moisture and partial shade in hot summer areas. Will reach 2 to 3 feet when in bloom. One of my favorites and makes a beautiful back border. Every herb garden needs a good sized patch. Very attractive to all types of pollinators. Hardy Perennial Hardy to all zones.
