Spotted Bee Balm (also called Dotted Mint or Dotted Horsemint) prefers sandy soils and full to part sun. It is an eccentric beauty in form and color with complex blossoms topping 2' stems in hues of pinkish-purple, green, beige, and maroon. 

Dormant bare root plants ship each year during optimal transplanting season: Fall (October) or Spring (April/May).

Spotted Bee Balm potted plants are available in the "Mix & Match" tray option only.  They ship mid-May through late-June. Click here to mix/match up to 6 species in a tray.
