Scientific Name: Mimulus aurantiacus

Mimulus aurantiacus, also known as the sticky monkeyflower, is a unique and beautiful species of monkeyflower native perennial to California, southwestern Oregon, and Baja, Mexico. It is named after its bright yellow-orange, trumpet-shaped flowers, which look like monkey faces. The plant grows to be about 1-3 feet tall and has a branching, upright habit. It is often found in moist, shady areas, such as stream banks and canyon bottoms. Monkeyflowers are attractive to pollinators such as hummingbirds and bees, blooming in the springtime.

Each wildflower seed packet contains approximately 100 seeds.
