Plant Features

Jacob Cline Bee Balm Plants produce gorgeous striking-red flower blooms that virtually guarantees hummingbirds, butterflies and bees will flock to your garden. The fragrant foliage is more resistant to powdery mildew than most older varieties. Beebalm plants flourish on a wide range of soils but do their best with moist, well-drained soil. It is a mid- to late season bloomer for butterfly and hummingbird gardens. Monarda can be planted under black oak trees. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid bee balm.

Monarda Companion Plants: Achillea, Eupatorium, Grasses, Phlox, Salvia

Jacob Cline Monarda Care: Plants should be always kept well-watered. The dried flowers produce a fruit that wild birds enjoy, so don’t cut back the plants back to the ground till late winter or early spring. Early spring is also a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.

Beautiful! Happily planted and growing! Hummingbirds are happy!

From Adrienne | August 05, 2022

Bang for my buck

I don't know of anything that is more worth the money than bee balm, and specifically Jacob Cline. The color is attractive to pollinators. I never have had as many hummingbirds until bee balm. I've never been disappointed, and that is rare, by an order from GrowJoy. Watching the sales is causes repeated orders but the plants are worth it.

Bee Balm!

I was hesitant to buy Jacob Kline because of the heat and humidity here in Texas. Joe S. suggested I pot it and provide some shade during heat of the day. Seems to be doing very well so far. Thanks.

Jacob Cline - Bee Balm - Monarda

Ordered 5 plants and all arrived in good packaging, leafy and ready for planting. I like the way they look and cannot see any reason they will not be successful. I'll be pinching them back several times until July 4 to keep them from getting 7 feet tall.

Still trying to survive

I ordered two types of monarda. One hanging in there, not much growth, this one was doing great until heat set in (100+ degrees, then puny-ed out. Put in shaded area with diffuse light and is recovered but no blooms. Hummingbirds are looking elsewhere, and the monarchs are eating my dill and rue.

Plant arrived well packaged, healthy and ready to transplant. After pairing it in a pot with the Rudbeckia it has totally taken off and is thriving. Out of all my plant orders from GrowJoy, this is my favorite plant and I'm looking forward to seeing its flowers along with those of its sunny Black Eye Susan companion.

Bee Balm

The Jacob Cline Monarda plant arrived in beautiful packaging, very good condition. Unfortunately, the deer nibbled it a bit, so I'm hoping they leave it alone!

From Denise | May 22, 2017

Big, healthy plants

The Jacob Cline Monarda plants were carefully packed in ingenious containers that prevented damage in transit.

Another vigorous plants from GrowJoy!

I was thrilled when my Jacob Cline Monarda arrived! Another healthy plant from you! I can't wait until it blooms!!

From Vicki | July 02, 2015

Arrived quickly and in great condition, can't wait for it to bloom.

Jacob Cline Monarda

I heard lots of negatives about Bee Balm, that it grows all over the place and is messy, but the 3 that I have grow & flower nicely. If they spread too much I just pull a runner up and move it or give it away. The Hummingbirds really DO love them!!

From Andrea | June 16, 2014

Nice monarda plants

These arrived well packed and very healthy. Within a one week of planting they have already grown significantly. Can't wait to see them bloom later this summer.

Gorgeous Red Blooms!

Jacob Cline is the best Monarda for Hummingbirds! The flowers are big, red and gorgeous, attracting the Hummers to the flowers! I have it in a container and can't wait until it blooms again! Love it!

Fast shipping and arrived in perfect condition. First time getting the Jacob Cline Monarda. Can't wait to enjoy it in my tea and cooking. Also it's a great anti-fungal product, fights mold.-
