(Bee Balm) Grand Parade™ Monarda is an exceptional hardy hybrid from the Morden Breeding Program in Manitoba. In mid-late summer, the compact bushy plants are covered with fun looking 2½" lavender purple flowers. Hummingbirds and butterflies cannot resist the sweet nectar of these fragrant flowers! The shiny dark green foliage has a delightful fragrance of mint that deer dislike. Grand Parade™ also exhibits very good mildew resistance!

Winner Review by Paul P | Zone: 7a
The color is more magenta than lavender, and it is gorgeous. Nice thick mildew resistant foliage. It's a winner in my garden. (Posted on 7/8/2016)
Big Reward Review by Pam | Zone: 5b
A petite bee balm that blooms its little head off and remains upright. I planted three of these near a butterfly bush two years ago and they massed beautifully within one season. Easy care and big reward perennial! (Posted on 1/14/2012)
