Bee balm for Hot humid south alabama?

Montgomery, AL(Zone 8b)

zone 8 south alabama with humid hot summers
I have dappled aft shade and full morning sun
I know that it says moist so I would plant it near
the daylilys as they can take moisture also by watering
deep once a week..
The salvias and iris are in the right side of the bed and
the ground is kept drier for them..in that area.

Will the bee balm mildew and will it be real invasive?
your thoughts on getting it or not..cambridge hot pink
is what I saw for sale in the containers today...

It is always beautiful in pictures but not sure it will be in hot
humid climate. your thought soon, please.

I have spotted beebalm that seems to do great down here in Florida (zone 9).

I have Raspberry Wine that has spread around a good bit, but Pardon My Purple has stayed a clump. Petite Delight and Petite Wonder have both been in 3 years, and now have a space about 2X3, but not full sun in that site. A tiny bit of mildew from time to time, but not bad. We are just off the Georgia coast, so really hot and humid. Funny, but bee balm isn't my best bee attractor. My best is African Blue Basil, of all things.
