Mimulus Red

Mimulus (Mimulus Hybridus F2 Twinkle Red) - This is an adorable little compact flower that is also known as Monkey Flower. It is easily established from Mimulus seeds, and it produces an abundance of wonderful, funnel-shaped, bright red flowers with attractive speckled centers. Each bloom consists of five frilly petals, and the bloom season lasts from late spring until frost. The light green, slightly serrated foliage is also very attractive. The Monkey Flower plant is great for the front of the border, containers, or baskets. In hotter climates, red Mimulus will prefer afternoon shade. Monkey Flower care includes not letting the plant dry out and an application of balanced fertilizer will help its bloom production. Red Monkey Flower plants are very easy to grow and very rewarding!
