I also have bee balm. Two years ago it was in full sun and grew tall and wide. Then I moved it to a shaded area and the growth slowed remarkably. This was my solution to both having this plant and wanting it to be better behaved.
Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) is attractive, tough, useful, and well-liked by bees. It will have pups so you can dig up the little babies and plant them elsewhere in your garden. Anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculum) has leaves and blossoms which can be made into a tea, blooms late in summer so the bees have nectar and pollen as the growing season comes to a close. I’m also very fond of some of the salvias. They are mostly ornamental but some have edible flowers and leaves and have long blooming periods. One of my favorites is Salvis darcyii. It has triangular, gray-green leaves and red flowers which the bumble bees love.
