'Jelly Bean Fiesta Marigold'
Thanks to the patient breeding of the late, great Rick Pershoff, the gardening world can enjoy this flamboyant garden-friendly Mimulus hybrid. Profuse eye-popping amber-red 2” blooms edged in gold appear year-round along the coast and Spring-Fall in hottest areas. Branching to 18” x 18” with glossy emerald leaves, it’s reliably showy in low fertility, native or rock gardens and containers. Tolerant of heat and zero Summer moisture, but will stay green and bloomy with some Summer water. Tolerates clayish soil, but best in well-drained. Deer and fire resistant. Hardy to 20 degrees F.
