A Native of the Appalachian Mountains, this red Bee Balm attracts many pollinators, and is especially popular with hummingbirds. It is also known as Oswego Tea, as it was used by the Oswego tribe to make tea, and also by the British separatists in the time of the Tea Tax. It does best in rich soils with high organic matter, and if grown in the shade will have longer bloom times.
