(Bee Balm) Monarda 'Pardon My Purple' is the most compact Monarda to date! 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 12" tall, the large 2 1/2-3" purple flowers are a real standout. The little mounds of mint-scented glossy dark green foliage are truly a hummingbird's dream come true. 'Pardon My Purple' exhibits excellent mildew resistance unlike many of the traditional Bee Balm varieties. Monarda is a deer resistant perennial! 'Pardon My Purple' is another great selection in the Proven Winners® Perennial plant line.
