My bee balm if not blooming of course but it is so green and we had 2 nights of 18 degree temp and several of 32 degree nights.
I am beginning to think that the foliage of my salvias and bee balm like
cool and even cold nights in zone 8
Your thoughts?
here is the bee balm today and here is some of the salvias
this one still green is the two toned pink microphylla salvia
the others died back from the cold at night last week..
