Monarda x 'Judith's Fancy Fuchsia'

beebalm

A taller beebalm cultivar, the purplish-red hues of 'Judith's Fancy Fuchsia' is a standout in the garden. Peak bloom occurs for over 3 weeks with 2 weeks bloom window on either side. An industry favorite, it was selected and named by Peter Heus from Enchanter’s Garden in Hinton, West Virginia. Hummingbirds love this variety!

A fan favorite at Mt. Cuba Center’s Monarda trials thanks to superior resistance to powdery mildew—this selection boasts sturdy, upright stems, and a prolific floral display of purplish-red flowers atop clean green foliage.
