Bee balm flowers are brilliant additions to late-summer herb gardens and flower borders. Butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, and other nectar-seeking creatures covet the tubular flowers on the plant’s rounded flower heads, and the leaves and flowers can also be made into tea. Other common names include Horsemint, Wild Bergamot, and Oswego Tea.
