Does bee balm bloom the first year? I planted it in several spots last year and none of them bloomed

First year perennial plants often don't bloom as they are focusing on root establishment but I'm a bit surprised that your bee balm didn't show a flower. Is it in full sun and moist soil? Apply compost to the surface yearly; this is the only fertilization bee balm should receive. Too much nitrogen yields lots of green growth and few flowers.
