Mimulus guttatus

Seep Spring Monkeyflower

This lovely Monkeyflower is found growing naturally in wet places. It is adaptable to full sun or part shade locations, but is at its showiest around a pond or seep. This plant also adapts readily to boggy conditions, and will spread by runners to colonize a suitable area.

The flowers are large, bright yellow, and profuse; blooming from early spring through the summer as long as it receives some water. Hummingbirds love the flowers, and the blossoms are also visited by a host of bees and other insects. 

The plant is occasionally used as a host for the larvae of the Buckeye butterfly.
