Yellow Monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus) Seed Packet


( / )

One of the more endearing herbaceous wildflowers. Very cute, sunny yellow, 5-lobed flowers (said to resemble a monkey’s face) occur prolifically at stem ends over a long bloom period – from spring into summer. This plant is simply lovely by pond or water feature edges, or anywhere that gets regular irrigation. Tolerant of many soil types. Attracts hummingbirds. Said to be deer resistant. Will spread by rhizomes or reseed itself if not deadheaded. Deciduous.
