A perennial flower, Wild Bergamot (A.K.A. Bee Balm) flowers from June to September.
Plant Wild Bergamot in a sunny, weed-free well-drained soil. Seeds can be broadcast on a weed-free surface from January to mid-May in sunny locations. Once the seeds germinate seedlings should be watered during extended dry period. During the first summer of full growth mow the area 3 to 5 times to keep the plants between 8 and 4 inches tall. Mowing also reduces weeds.
Continue to add leaf mold and compost to your soil, as the plant’s shallow root systems spread easily through light soil.
