Mimulus bridgesii

Mimulus bridgesii Mimulus bridgesii


What a wonderful little groundcover this very rare Chilean "Monkey Flower" has turned out to be! Merry little bright yellow "monkeys"  all dressed up in crimson leopard-y spots abound on short stems to 4" atop a super-dense, creeping, trailing mat of emerald green foliage. Such a cheerful, small scale groundcover or hanging basket candidate. Potted up in a 15 gal. container ours trailed mat-like and handsomely over the edges. Nice long bloom season, too, from May to Summer's end. Good composty soil is best. Tolerates brief periods of 25F.
