    Bush monkey-flower

    Related Articles

    The bush monkey-flower (Mimulus aurantiacus), also known as the Sticky monkey-flower, has pale orange flowers and a sprawling habit. Grow it in an urn to trail downwards or at the edge of paving, but not near too narrow a path since it is brittle and resents being trodden on. It rarely lasts through a winter except in the mildest climates, but cuttings are easily struck in late summer. Mimulus aurantiacus has pale orange flowers and a sprawling habit.
