Description: Lemon mint or lemon bee balm (Monarda citriodora) is an annual flowering plant that is a member of the mint family. The wildflower, native to the midwestern plains, is characterized by pink or purple spike-shaped flowers. Lemon mint dies after the first frost of the season, and must be replanted after the frost is over.
Optimum Conditions: Lemon mint seeds grow best in dry, alkaline soil, but they are adaptable to other types of soils, so long as the soil is not overly moist. Hot, dry weather is best for growing lemon mint. The plant can be quite aggressive when left unchecked and often grows in big colonies.
Planting the Seeds: Lemon mint seeds should be planted after there is no more danger of frost; seeds should be planted 1/8 inch deep and 3 inch apart. Lemon mint seeds will germinate between 10 and 30 days. When the plants reach 2 inches in height, thin them to 6 inches apart. Lemon mint will grow to 2 to 3 feet tall.
