POCAHONTAS™ is a beebalm series by Dutch breeders from Dümmen Orange offering a range of compact and free-flowering plants resistant to powdery mildew. It was first introduced at the prestigious trade fair of novelties Plantarium in 2017. Plants of POCAHONTAS™ Red Rose beebalm produce bright purple red flowers atop about 40 cm tall stems from July until late August. Deciduous leaves are widely lance-shaped, deep green, and slightly undulated. Flowers are edible and fragrant leaves can be used in tea and other cold drinks. Plants are erect and bushy.

Monarda grows reliably in almost any well-drained, medium fertile soil, preferably in full sun. It forms dense clumps and remains healthy unless overwatered – then foliage may be prone to powdery mildew. Hardiness guaranteed to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5), however as all other monardas this variety might possibly survive down to -34°C.
