Vibrant red flowers attract hummingbirds from midsummer to fall! Red Bee Balm, also known as Jacob Cline Monarda, lures bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden with its fragrant, 2-3 inch, tubular-shaped flowers. Growing 24-36 inches tall, this easy-to-grow, clump-forming perennial makes a big impact when massed in the garden. It's also a showy cut flower. When crushed, its serrated leaves have an aromatic, minty fragrance. Grows best in full sun to partial shade. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 4-9.
