Plant Details

Awarded the RHS Award for Garden Merit and it certainly is a 'dooer'. With red flowers all summer long above compact, neat foliage, this plant is great for a rockery (provided it's not too dry), front of border or pond edge.

Happy in sun or shade as long as the soil isn't too dry, this really is a very easy and rewarding plant to grow.

'Whitecroft Scarlet' is an old variety becoming less and less common as newer varieties are raised and promoted. However the newer varieties tend to be shorted lived so we still prefer this old favourite.

Height: 20cm

Common name(s): Monkey flower

The name Monkey Flower comes from the Latin Mimus, meaning mimic or actor because the flowers resembled a mask. All Mimulus prefer moist soil and shelter from strong winds.

All our plants are supplied established in pots. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
