Hi Karen, this bee balm is a stunning color. I have only ever seen the red ones and it's such a delight to see a different shade, especially in this pretty lavender. Thank you so much for linking with Today's Flowers, and have a great weekend :)

Beautiful - and my favourite colour. I do also love bee-friendly plants, so maybe I should make room for bergamot in my garden?
