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 naiandinus is a magnificent form of the species that was known for many years as Mimulus 'Andean Nymph'. Everything is bigger and better than normal, and the large flowers, pale creamy yellow, stained and spotted with purple, are carried in abundance for a long time. It is easily raised from seeds or cuttings, and will usually maintain itself in a suitable cool, damp spot in the garden.
