(Bee Balm) Enjoy the beauty of Bee Balm earlier with our Leading Lady Series. 'Leading Lady Lilac' starts the summer off right with its lilac purple blooms. Standing 10-14 inches tall, this compact bloomer forms a tidy clump up to 24" wide and deserves a spot front and center in your flower border. Unlike other Monardas, 'Leading Lady Lilac' has dark purple spots dappled on its soft lilac blooms. This repeat bloomer has little to no deadheading required as the secondary cycle of blooms stands just above the spent blooms to extend your garden color. Enjoy watching the flutter of hummingbirds and butterflies as they enjoy the fragrant flowers. 'Leading Lady Lilac' is also a great source of nectar for the honeybees. If deer are a problem in your garden, no worries, the foliage of 'Leading Lady Lilac' is scented which is a deterrent to the deer. 'Leading Lady Lilac' Monarda is another great selection to the Proven Winners® Perennial Line.
