Description

Monarda Fireball, or Fireball Bee Balm, is a petite, clump-forming perennial celebrated for its profusion of brilliant scarlet red blooms. A crossbreed of the renowned American wildflower, Monarda didyma, it has gained popularity across gardens of all sizes.

This plant is notably undemanding, accommodating various conditions with ease. While it thrives best in full sunlight, it can also endure partial shade. Optimal growth requires consistently moist, well-draining soil, particularly in periods of intense heat and aridity.

With its rapid growth, Monarda Fireball can swiftly expand its territory. To prevent overcrowding, dividing the plant every few years is essential. Furthermore, propagation through cuttings or seeds is viable.

For those seeking a vibrant, low-maintenance perennial that entices pollinators, Monarda Fireball stands as an excellent choice.
