Description
These low growing, bushy mimulus plants produce masses of tubular blooms, looking much like exotic, wide snapdragon flowers. Although monkey flowers are tender perennials, they are best treated as an annual for beds, containers and baskets, except in the mildest parts of the country. Mimulus 'Magic Rainbow' is ideal to add a bright splash of summer colour from June to August in lightly shaded, moist beds in the garden. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: The leaves of the monkeyflower can be eaten raw or cooked. They have a slightly bitter flavour and are mostly added to salads as the leaves can also be used as a lettuce substitute. For more details about edible flowers click here.

How to Grow
Pot up monkey flower plug plants into 9cm pots and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When mimulus plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in fertile, well drained soil that remains reliably moist throughout summer. Choose a position in dappled shade, or a sunny spot with some protection from direct sun during the hottest part of the day.
More Info
Water mimulus plants regularly to ensure that the soil does not dry out. Deadhead faded mimulus flowers throughout the summer to encourage more blooms to be produced.
