Plant Description and Details

One of our favorites! A treat for the senses, Mountain Beebalm offers refreshing mint scent to anyone who touches it. Its tidy, 18" mound of petite leaves will grace any dry area or rock garden. Many frilly purple flowers cover the plant in mid-summer. Can be found on rocky outcroppings in the mountains, blooming beautifully where few other plants thrive.
