Mimulus Yellow

Mimulus (Mimulus Hybridus F2 Twinkle Yellow) - This little Mimulus is ideal for a naturalized setting. Commonly known as Monkey Flower, this annual is found in a wide range of moist habitats. Mimulus Monkey Flower plants grow in wet meadows and along stream beds to steep slopes fed by high mountain snow melt. Its affinity to flowing water makes Mimulus plants perfect for a water landscape. Monkey Flower plants are easy to establish from Mimulus seeds, and they quickly provide radiant yellow color for a long bloom season. Monkey Flower care includes deadheading the spent blooms to prolong the bloom season. Mimulus Monkey Flower will self-seed, and it often will come back the next year from the Mimulus flower seed that it drops.

Grow Mimulus seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the end of frost season. Press the flower seed into the soil but do not cover. Transplant Monkey Flower seedlings outdoors after danger of frost has passed 6 - 8 inches apart. From Mimulus flower seed to blooming plants in 8 - 10 weeks.
