Pollinators like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds play a critical role in our planet’s biodiversity, the global food system and human health. Sadly, some species of pollinators, and bees in particular, are seeing a decline in their populations. Here is where home gardeners like you can make a difference. By planting pollen and nectar rich flowers you can attract and provide food for these invaluable species. When planting a pollinator friendly garden, it is important to plant a sizeable mass of flowers, so they are easily seen, and it is also important to have a long succession of blooms to provide nectar throughout the season. Height 28-36". No. 1 size roots.

Planting Perennial Roots:
It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more than a day, before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Planting: Plant with crowns at soil level, 12 inches apart.
Growing: Best grown in well-drained, organic, moist soil. Prefers full sun or light shade. Beebalm forms large clumps once established and can be divided in early spring. Cut leaves to the ground when they begin to yellow.
