Bee Balm Bust

I took the suggestion of someone and cut back my bee balm in the late spring. It was supposed to make it fuller. Well, it may have worked for her bee balm but it didn't work for mine. It's a real bust this year. Even the hummingbirds take a sniff and buzz on by. I had had flower supports around it expecting it to get to where it would need them. I took them down last week because they never got tall enough. Next year I'll leave them be the bee balm they are meant to be.
