Customer Questions & Answers

can this plant stay planted outside year round?

can this plant stay planted outside year round?
Asked by: sally
Hello, yes, the 'Petite Delight should be planted in the ground and left outside during the winter months. If the plant is being grown in a pot above ground, it should be overwintered in an unheated area, such as a garage.

I bought one last year in NYC to put in a pot, now the branches are brown, it will come again this year ?

Asked by: aias1957
Hello, thank you for your question. The 'Petite Delight should return this year as long as the pot did not freeze solid. If the pot was not brought indoors in late fall and housed in an unheated area, then the roots would be damaged and the plant will succumb to the harsh winter conditions.

After putting it into the ground, the plant seems to have disappeared entirely within a couple of weeks. I also ordered the other Bee Balm plant Home Depot offers - the 1 gal raspberry wine. That one arrived as a large and healthy plant and is doing well in the garden.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different Color from Photo The plant I received was healthy and blooming and seems to be doing very well. My only complaint is that the photo shows flowers that are a vivid bright pink which is what I wanted and the plant I received has flowers that are a soft lilac/lavender color(definitely not what is shown). I'm happy with the plant just disappointed that it isn't the pop of color I was hoping for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I ordered 6 plants at the end of May. They arrived in great condition, planted next day. The leaves are a beautiful green but the flowers only bloomed on a handful of buds and lasted about 2 weeks. Since then, nothing. Now I have green plants with no flowers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! Didn't know there was a shorter bee balm with all the hummingbird benefits of the taller version. Nice rounded, healthy plant right out of the box.
