Simple, Easy, Beautiful

Purple Rooster Bee Balm and Russian Sage
Several years ago we ordered 'Purple Rooster' Bee Balm (Monarda) from Dayton Nursery not just for the wonderful purple/blue of the flowers, but for the simplicity of care.  This tall variety requires no staking, and has also proven to be mildew free, as advertised. A large part of "no maintenance" gardening is picking the easy to care for varieties in the first place... and then planting them in large masses that leave no room for weeds.
