What are the pros? Excellent germination, hardy
What are the cons? None
I am thrilled with this plant! It can grow more than 2 feet tall and bushes out as you cut the blooms. Dries very nicely and then remains flavorful. "Lightens a discouraged heart" is true and yummy and a comfort as tea/tonic. If you cut blooms off and leave on the ground, they will reseed the next year. Easy to grow, bees and other pollinators love it. Grows slower in partial shade but it will grow!

What are the pros? The bees loved it
What are the cons? none
I planted this in July last year and while the seeds grew, the plants were pathetic. Only a few inches high and truly sad looking. The little champs though, they did flower and then crisped up and away.
So I totally forgot about them, chalked them up as a fail, and moved on.
Imagine my surprise when they started popping up in late fall from the seeds left by the itty bitty sad little plants and how well they did over the winter. They got over 2 feet tall, very bushy and COVERED with flowers. The pollinators loved them so much I couldn't bring myself to cut any but I did cut the plants when they had died back in late spring to save some seeds and spread it around the yard.
In Florida, this little gem likes the winter. Next time I will fight the bees for a taste.

What are the pros? Everything
What are the cons? Nothing
This was my first time trying this herb. Germination was very high and I started the seedling in seed trays. I originally planted the seedlings in my yard, but I have heavy sandy soil that stays wet and the plants were not growing well, so I transplanted them into pots and they are doing great. The herbs are now in bloom and I have used the leaves in tea with lemon balm. I will grow these from now on, I love them. Next year I will pinch the tops like basil to encourage them to spread out. They are about a foot high and only a couple of inches wide. They have a lemony smell and taste and I love them.

What are the pros? Great flavor
I love this herb! Bought the seeds on a whim and the germination rate was fantastic. Started them inside and then moved them into a fabric pot with mint and bee balm. It's doing great in essentially full sun (which in Phoenix in June is like growing *on* the sun) and I've been harvesting leaves for tea almost daily. Great lemony taste. I've had a few friends and family try a leaf and they've all found it delicious and novel (except for my boyfriend, but hey, more for me). I mix it with spearmint and peppermint for tea. No blooms yet i so can't comment on how it attracts pollinators but I'll be growing this for tea for a long time.

What are the pros? Pretty and easy to grow.
What are the cons? None apparent yet
My seeds germinated very readily and plants are growing well in the garden with profuse blooming starting. I like to plant bee and butterfly friendly plants among my usual Winter vegetable plants and this balm is working well.
