Last year I bought this bee balm on a whim (and full price) at our local big-box home store. I had been eyeing it up for months, and after the tag enticed me with “raspberry colored blooms” I snatched it up and excitedly planted it and waited. And waited, and waited. The thing got taller, but never produced blooms last year. I was thrilled when they came back this year, and even more thrilled as I was watering this morning to discover that they do, in fact, have raspberry tinged blooms. What an amazing surprise to start the first weekend in a while that JGL and I get to spend together.
