Plant Details

A rare plant native to Eastern North America. Well worth growing in the garden for any soil that doesn't get too dry and happy in permanently wet soil too. 

Very pretty violet-pink tubular flowers at many levels up tall stems from June to August.

Height and spread: 60cm x 30cm

Common name(s): Allegheny 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 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.
