    Default Does anyone know what this shrub is?

    I was driving home yesterday and saw that my neighbor's shrub was COVERED in my bees. The girls were like a cloud hovering over it. I want to get some of these, but I don't know what they are. Can anyone help me out? I posted photos on this site. Thanks!

    Is it a bush? The flowers look just like my Bee Balm plants (except my flowers are purple). The Bee Balm plant grows tall and gets thicker every year, I suppose after a few years it would begin to look like a bush. Just rambling, as my oldest Bee Balm plant is only in its second year.

    Yes, it's a bush. It is most definitely not bee balm. In fact, there is an enormous patch of bee balm right next to it, but the bees ignore it entirely.

    Oh sorry, Hypericum calcinum is the ground cover. There is also a shrub.
