Mimulus Monkey Flower is moderately vigorous and is freely branching with dark green glossy leaves that are slightly serrated. White Mimulus has a profusion of large white ruffled flowers that continuously bloom from late spring to first frost. In frost free regions, Mimulas will bloom year round. The white Monkey Flower plant is easy to start from flower seeds, and it makes a great addition to the front of the garden or in containers.
