Grow Spotted Bee Balm from fresh Monarda punctata seeds. Spotted Bee Balm flowers are gorgeous plants that will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden. They grow to a mature height of about 12 to 36 inches tall and need little attention once established. Monarda punctata is categorized as a perennial that is native to much of the eastern and midwestern United States. The flowers appear creamy white, and have accents of purple above and below their blooms.

Monarda seeds can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow at a depth of 1/16” under topsoil, in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Transplant, or direct sow into the garden or in containers when the weather is warm. Keep in mind that Monarda seeds will require sunlight to germinate.

Bee Balm plants will enjoy an area that receives full sunlight to partial shade for the majority of the day. They tend to thrive best in rich, well draining soils. It’s recommended to mix any hard compact soil with compost for better drainage. Water the seeds daily to ensure that the soil is kept moist until germination has occurred.

Seeds will begin to germinate within 14 to 28 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of around 12 to 36 inches tall and can be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Spotted Bee Balm produces unique flowers with colors of lavender, white and speckled brown spots.
