Monarda didyma 'Jacob Cline' (Lamiaceae)
Red Bee Balm
King Arthur had his Holy Grail, we have our search for mildew-resistant Monardas. Thanks to the Saul Brothers — good knights of Southern horticulture — we have the best red so far. 'Jacob Cline' has smooth deep-green foliage and vivid scarlet blooms in summer. Vigorous, classic, and a hummingbird favorite!
