Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds aren't the only ones who love this member of the Sugar Buzz® series of compact, colorful Bee Balms! Cotton Candy will wow you with masses of light pink blooms over a long mid- to late summer season, brightening the sunny border and all your favorite containers.

These blooms reach 2 to 2½ inches wide, filled with short, frilly petals concealing a nectar-filled center. The flowers face the sun and are held above the foliage, forming a canopy of bright color that lasts for weeks just when the garden needs it most!

This perennial reaches about a foot high when not in bloom, with flowering stems adding a few more inches. It spreads 18 inches wide, but is never invasive or aggressive. Although a selection of the native American Monarda, it is well-mannered in the garden, sending up dense flowering stems but never getting in the way. Use it fearlessly in crowded borders and combo containers!

Best of all, Cotton Candy is resistant to the scourge of powdery mildew, which can make other Bee Balms difficult to grow in humid or rainy climates. This plant stays attractive from spring through fall, no matter what the weather does.
