One has to smile at a plant called a Spunky Monkey – and that was enough for us to get this to go into the Whimsey Garden, once the area has been prepared. The flowers on this are larger than the species and appear during spring and summer. The upper petals are a deep raspberry and the lower petals are yellow fading to cream with abundant hairs. In towards the crevasse are lots of raspberry dots. Stems are dark and arching and the foliageis blue green with some purple veining.
Mimulus naiandinis is native to Chile.
About 18″ x 18″ and self sows. Wants some water in summer, but tolerates lots of shade.
