Mimulus gutatus


Monkey Musk

Profusion of tall stems covered with striking yellow flowers.


Grows virtually anywhere, to produce a lovely medium height, yellow/green display from late Spring to early Autumn.

Top tip:  Cut plant stems back to 10cm in early Summer to produce a bushier and more compact display. Readily sets seed, so can be invasive.

Flowers: May-August

Height: 15-30cm

Propagation: Very easy to divide from Spring/Summer as stems root where they touch the soil.

Depth of water over the soil: 0-5cm

Planting: Plant into 5lt planting crate using heavy garden loam or Westland Aquatic soil.
