Jacob Cline Monarda 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 moderately moist, well-drained sites. They will tolerate some drought once established. These nectar rich flowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The flowers also produce a fruit that wild birds enjoy, so don’t deadhead the plants! Monarda can be planted under black oak trees. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid these plants.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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!

Comment: 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!!
"Nice monarda plants"

Comment: 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.
