Red Bee Balm may be grown as a ornamental plant or wildflower both within and outside its native range. Adds vibrant color at a time when other plants are apt to be drab and will thrive in any moist soil that is well-drained! Bee Balm has a long history of use as a medicinal plant by many Native Americans, and is the natural source of the antiseptic Thymol. The leaves of the plant have a minty scent and are a good ingredient for potpourri making. Leaves are also used in salads and beverages! These flowers are also recommended for attracting hummingbirds!
