The trailing stems of these plants root at the leaf nodes, so they make excellent ground cover in suitably damp places. They produce lots of brightly coloured musk flowers.Mimulus 'Highland Yellow' is very like its Highland Red and Highland Pink cousins, but has pale yellow flowers, opening in succession for a long time. Great for covering wet ground.
|Mimulus naiandinus was known for many years as Mimulus 'Andean Nymph'. It has lots of pale creamy yellow flowers, stained and spotted with purple. It may be short-lived, but it is easily raised from seeds or cuttings, and will usually maintain itself in a suitable cool, damp spot in the garden.|
