Monarda didyma 'Jacob Cline': foliage

[Photo: Monarda didyma Jacob Cline foliage.]The beebalm is growing like a weed! I never noticed last year that the centre vein of each leaf is red (click to enlarge); don't know if that's characteristic of the species or just this cultivar.


  1. You have a beautiful blog.

    I was blog walking and stopped by because of your interests in homeschooling and animal rights.

    I'm a children's author and post regular writing activities for writers, teachers, and parents at

    I'm also an animal lover. My blog Animal Talk can be found at

    Please come visit either or both sites!

  2. I'll have to go out and check my beebalm later this morning. I just love the blooms when they appear.

  3. A friend gave me some red beebalm, which quickly colonized a corner of my garden. It did so well, I dug it up and gave some away to my neighbour. Naturally, it then up and died in my garden, thrived next door. So much so, that it has now snuck under our shared fence and is growing in my garden again. That's okay by me. The hummingbirds love it as much as the bees.
