The Magic monkeyflower hybrids offer an enormous range of color and large flower size for exceptional summer bedding plants. The monkeyflowers are a large group with many species native to the west coast of North America. These wildflowers, though finicky and often short lived in cultivation have proven quite garden worthy and have yielded this exquisite series of hybrids. The primary parents are the Pacific Coast Mimulus guttatus and a Chilean native, Mimulus luteus. This small bushy plant bears soft oval evenly green leaves and is often grown as an annual for the florist trade.
The Magic hybrids are lovely in the small garden with their large tubular flowers often compared to snapdragons. Their 18 strong varieties are mottled and include exotic bicolors in many shades of orange, red, rose and yellow, which are quite popular in Europe to warm up in cool northern gardens as a bedding plant. The key to monkeyflowers is soil, which should be kept evenly moist yet very well drained. This is an exceptional container plant for instant color on a sunny porch, patio and balcony, but protect from direct afternoon exposure to prevent dehydration and burning.
