Plant Highlights

This monkeyflower has soft, bright green leaves, and stunning red tubular flowers most of the year. It is naturally found growing along streambeds and in riparian areas so you can expect to give this Monkeyflower some moisture and shade to do well. It brings great color to a woodland effect garden, scontrasting well with the foliage of ferns and other greenery. A favorite with hummingbirds and a great choice for those who love showy and colorful flower shows.
