Scarlet Monkey Flower

Mimulus Cardinalis

A wide-ranging group of plants with widely differing needs. One is a short-lived perennial usually grown as an annual, the others are shrubby perennials. All have a funnel-shaped flower with two "lips" through to resemble a grinning monkey face. Blooms late summer, Aug.-Sept.
