Monarda 'Bubblegum Blast'
Common name: Bee Balm
Sugar Buzz® series
This brand new series of SUGAR BUZZ® Monardas is perfectly suited to the middle of the flower border. All four unique colors in this series are similar in size, bloom
time, and vigor, making it easy for growers to offer the whole lot.
In midsummer, 'Bubblegum Blast' forms a solid dome of hot pink, 2-2½” flowers on strong, well-branched stems. The dark green foliage forms an upright clump that will fill out containers nicely but won’t run all over the garden. It displays above average resistance to powdery mildew.
Monarda is native to eastern North America, so it is easy to grow and it multiplies quickly. The flowers' sweet nectar attracts scores of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden. The aromatic foliage smells like mint,citrus when crushed and is often used to flavor
Lavender blue flowers are held by attractive purple bracts.A breakthrough, shorter height for this color.
