When thinking about how to grow Bee Balm Flower, you have probably already decided that you want to take advantage of the blooming blooms throughout the year. This species of bee is native to Mexico and Central America and blooms during early spring up until early summer. The flowers are very open, large, and colorful, making them excellent choices for your home garden or an outdoor garden in your yard.
This species of bee likes to bloom in rich clumps of colors. The vibrant, bright blooms will overwhelm any other plant or flower in your garden, and it can easily dominate the area. Because of its popularity, it is one of the most expensive blooming perennials available. If you want to ensure that each plant blooms for the full year, you should consider planting them at least a foot deep.
Another reason why this type of bee is so popular is because it is easy to grow. Many types of plants, such as annuals, can be grown on a limited budget if you are lucky enough to have a large garden space to work with. However, because Bee Balm Flower grows in such a large clump and blooms so frequently, it is an ideal choice for the beginning gardener with few plants to maintain. It is considered easy to care for and very forgiving when mistakes are made. Anyone can grow this impressive blooming perennial because it is a perennial plant and will grow back in the next several years to bloom again.
The key to growing any type of flower is to be consistent. Grow it from spring until late summer, and then continue to grow it each year for a full blooming. For Bee Balm Flower, the best time to plant is during early springs just before the first frost. You should be able to find a sunny spot to plant it as it blooms just before the bud opens. It blooms in white, purple and yellow, with red and burgundy colors to complement its beauty.
While it is an excellent choice for the beginner gardener, it is not recommended for the novice potter. This type of flowering plant does not do well in dry soil. Most experts would recommend planting it in approximately a foot of water, but that may not be enough if you live in a dry and hot climate. I have found that if you use a potting mix designed specifically for plants that like to grow upside down in pots, you should not have any problems maintaining it properly. The water will drain out of the bottom. If you do not have a potting mix designed for plants that grow upside down, you should keep in mind that Bee Balm Flowers should never be planted in regular potting medium because it will rot easily.
In spite of all the negative things that are said about Bee Balm Flower, I have personally managed to grow it from seeds. It is possible to grow this plant from cuttings, but the blooms usually take quite a while to appear. If you are willing to wait that long, there are several varieties of Bee Balm Flowers that can be grown from cuttings including Royal Balm, White Butterfly, Green Tea Bell, and Black Royal Boursault. Each has its own attractive characteristics and if trained properly, produces stunning flowers that are worth keeping.
If you want to learn how to grow Bee Balm Flower, it is important that you start it off in a healthy and well cared for location. It takes time to develop a healthy growing location for this exotic flower. The best thing to do if you are new to this type of flowering plant is to ask professional gardeners for advice. They will be able to advise you on the type of area where this plant would flourish the best. You will also need to provide them with adequate lighting conditions, good drainage, and good soil to help the plant grow.
When you are learning how to grow Bee Balm Flower, it is a good idea to trim any overgrown growth. The blooms will only last for a short time as the flower grows, but if you prune it early, then the flower will grow to full size before you even flower it. The blooms are large, white, trumpet-shaped flowers, with pungent odors. The pollen from this flower will irritate your throat and may lead to bad respiratory infections.
