I’m spending time reviewing the wildflowers of Missouri. This week I plan to post pictures I’ve taken of wildflowers in their habitat.
Bee Balm is in Lamiaceae or mint family. Most stems in this family are hollow and square in shape. The leaves are opposite and usually aromatic. Leaves can be used in tea, seasoning, jelly and mint sauce. And bees love these plants! Plant these natives in your garden to attract pollinators.
