Rarely seen in the UK, this lovely mimulus makes large clumps of hairy, sparsely-toothed, pale to mid-green leaves, above which open most unusually-coloured trumpet-shaped flowers. White to cream-coloured flowers are overlaid with a pink to purple flush, fading to cream at the edges, with the tongue spotted purple.
Repeat flowers throughout the summer.
From the foothills of the Andean mountains in Chile.
Happy in sun or partial shade as long as the soil isn't too dry.
Surprisingly, it is fully hardy. We've grown it outside through several winters now.
All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, 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.
