Plant Highlights

With its mellow orange flowers Monkeyflower is a beautiful plant to grow in your garden. Foliage is a deep green witha slight sticky feel. Flowers are profuse, especially if you take the time to deadhead and encourage more flowering. It is a favorite for both hummingbirds and butterflies. The color range varies from a buff to a sunset yellow - orange. Inland this plant will look its best when given some summer shade and pinched back to create a denser form.
