Good Qualities

Year 1

True red color (5); Larger flowers than other Monarda (2); Dark green foliage is attractive; Beautiful shape; Vigorous grower. No powdery mildew. Tall; Customers loved it. Held up well in vase.

Year 2

Wonderful color (3); Large flower (2); East to grow (too easy!). Holds up well if cut at the right time; Long stems, mildew resistance; No mildew. Most vigorous monarda I’ve seen. Propagates easily from cuttings. Produces marketable cut first year; Unusual flower; Great flower form. Very good disease resistence.

Problems

Year 1

They had a short bloom time and the stems were very brittle. In addition, the stems tend to grow laterally and had a strong medicinal smell; Just started to get tall enough by September 1 and still blooming September 23; Had to stake. Short for this year. Looks like it will be taller next year; Not heat tolerant.

Year 2

Hard to cut at the right time. Seems to go by quickly. Can wilt easily if not cut at the wrong time; None; Too short; Didn’t like the full sun and heat; Poor keeping quality..

Comments

Year 1

No powdery mildew seen at all; Loved the stuff. Will it overwinter in Zone 3, which is the real test now since it passed the consumer test; Began picking August 5. Nice flower head. Height is short for the size of flower. If it is taller next year, it should be nice. Clean plant, no loss of plants; I planted ‘Jacob Cline’ in 1997 with plugs from North Creek. It was terrific. I love this one, color, size, etc.

Year 2

I really like Jacob and so do my customers. It gets out of hand in the garden quickly and I had a problem getting it to stand up straight so I could get consistently long stems. I used the short ones in small bouquets, though, so they were not lost; I have about 200 plants now. This is a winner; Best monarda for cutting on the market today; One of the best from the trials.
