Mimulus bifidus

Cultivate a graceful cascade of clear white, 2”, azalea-style blooms with this fine and fancy drought tolerant, deer resistant native perennial from Spring thru end of Summer! Thriving in well-drained, not-so-fertile soil (think of that dry hillside behind your house) and UNDER OAKS, this pretty “Monkeyflower” makes a great nectar source for bees, hummers and butterflies, including our endangered Checkerspot butterfly. Pinch back several times a year to encourage bloom. To 24” x 30”. Slender, deep green foliage stays handsome with once-a-month Summer water. Hardy to 15-20° F.
