Description Cultural Notes Plant Care
Monarda didyma 'Jacob Cline' (Bee Balm, bergamot, horsemint). 'Jacob Cline' sports aromatic, scarlet-red, 2-3" tubular flowers to 4" across in mid to late summer, on top of 4-5' tall, upright, sturdy stems. Regularly deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous bloom into the fall. Moderate to fast growth in most soils, but prefers it moist. Sun to part shade; spreads faster in shade. Division usually needed every three years as center will die out and to prevent excessive spread (especially in the South). Known for resistance to powdery mildew and rust. Thinning out some stems at the base early in the season, will provide
better air circulation, and bigger blooms on the remaining stems. Cut plants back in late fall to 2-4" tall. Excellent in perennial borders, herb gardens and naturalized. Attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds!
