Seeds--French wildflower

Join Mailing List

Average to wet soils--Spotted monkeyflower

Common or spotted monkeyflower seems to be a franco-american plant...and then some. With a circumpolar distribution in the wild, this sweet, sunny yellow-flowered perennial flowers from mid-spring to mid-summer. With height varying from one to two feet depending on habitat, monkeyflower prefers a moist to wet soil and sun to part shade. Usually blooms the first year from seed.

Like all tube-shaped blossoms, it attracts hummingbirds. The yellow flowers flare at the opening and are often spotted with orange or red. The foliage is attractive too--bright apple-green, sometimes irregularly lobed, and clasping the stems in opposite pairs. Hardiness reports vary, but it is solid from Zones 6-9, and probably into Zone 5 or colder, as it is reported growing in Canada.
