Bee Balm is a member of the mint herb family and is also known as oswego tea, horsemint, and bergamot. This perennial flower is a multi-tasker in the garden and will add fragrance, color, texture, and height while attracting hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators.
If you have a low-lying landscape area that tends to stay damp, bee balm is the ideal plant for that area. The entire plant is also edible and is said to provide some health benefits when ingested.
