Notes:
'Snow White' is an older variety first introduced in 1955. It has remained one of the best white bee balms ever since. The delicate pure white flower clusters are a bit smaller than the newer red cultivars but still just as showy. 'Snow White' is not as resistant to powdery mildew so it is important that plants do not become stressed from lack of water. Give the plants a good deep soaking during dry spells and apply a good layer of mulch to keep roots from drying out
