Does anyone know where i can purchase bee balm plants in the Gainesville or Ocala area? I can find dotted horsemint but a really want red or pink (preferably red) bee balm.
I don't know where you can find it but if you do please share the info! Years ago I had a beautiful purple bee balm that I would love to have again.
Check one of your local big box stores, I bought some recently, either Home Depot or Lowes, can't remember. It was with the mints. I've got it in a raised planter and it's doing great.
Home depot had them. They were with the herbs.
Thanks all. I checked the Lowes and Home Depots around me, both with the garden flowers and herbs, with no luck. I thought I had seen them there before too.
I will definitely let you know if I find them.
Karalynn - You may want to consider starting beebalm from seed. I've done it in the past.
Ok, so I gave up on finding plants locally and ordered them from Hirt's Gardens. I was a little nervous as they had mixed reviews. But, I received healthy, strong plants. They've been in the ground for 2 weeks now and have more than doubled in size. I ordered panorama red shades, Marshall's delight and coral reef. The coral reef will probably be blooming in a week. Today I get a message that the Jacob Kine was back in stock, so I ordered some.
Can't wait for my hummers to enjoy the flowers :)
