Beebalm Interesting Notes

This drop-dead red variety was found growing wild near the Blue Ridge Parkway by a Georgia plantsman who knew he had a good thing when his discovery proved all but impervious to powdery mildew. Large, showy flower heads and disease-resistant foliage ensure that 'Jacob Cline' will soon become the standard red Monardas.

This North American genus has several species, all of which share tartly fragrant foliage and the square stems that typify members of the Mint family. The late-summer flower heads are hemispheres of tubular blooms in brilliant colors. Plants thrive in full sun or partial shade and evenly moist soil. Under these conditions, they are vigorous to the point of invasiveness, perhaps past it. Hummingbirds are drawn to the flowers. - White Flower Farm
