(Bee Balm) Monarda 'Pardon My Cerise' is a wonderfully compact Bee Balm that packs a ton of flower color mid to late summer! If your garden is lacking space for the traditional large Monarda, this compact introduction is just for you. This is a great selection for the front of your garden or for use in a combination planter. Standing only 14-18" tall the large 2 1/2-3" deep red flowers are a real standout, a hummingbird and honey bees dream come true. The little mounds of mint-scented, glossy, dark green foliage are deer resistant. 'Pardon My Cerise' exhibits excellent mildew resistance unlike many of the traditional Bee Balm varieties. Monarda is a deer resistant perennial! 'Pardon My Cerise' is another great selection in the Proven Winners Perennial plant line.
