Cultivar Notes - 'Jacob Cline'
Very large, bright red florets appear in tight clusters atop stocky, square stems from midsummer to fall. This variety is one of the most mildew resistant as reported throughout the United States.
Genus Notes - Monarda
Bees love Bee Balm, it's true, but so do hummingbirds. In the moist soil they prefer, plants spread quickly by underground stems to form thickets of tall square stems, lined with fragrant foliage and topped with colorful mid- to late-summer blooms. Monarda has mint-scented foliage and unusual colorful flowers that are surrounded by equally colorful bracts. Deadhead for rebloom.
