Mimulus cardinalis ‘Red Dragon’

Red Dragon Monkey Flower

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.364.670

Monkey Flowers are short-lived perennials that are bright and colourful bloomers, especially useful in wet situations. Plants form a low mat of fresh green leaves with little snapdragon style flowers. This selection features showy, scarlet-red blooms throught the summer. A wonderful plant for mixed containers or window boxes, also effective at the pond edge or in a moist border. Remove faded flowers for continual bloom, or just shear plants back hard once in midsummer. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds.
