Mimulus Jelly Bean Orange - Jelly Bean Orange Monkeyflower

Mimulus Jelly Bean Orange is almost always sporting at least a few blooms. Mimulus Jelly Bean Orange grows well in full sun near the coast but prefers some mid day shade when planted in inland gardens. Jelly Bean Orange flowers are larger than the native species and more ruffled with fewer markings but still orange with a pale throat. Good drainage conditions are required for the shrubby Mimulus cultivars. This can be accomplished by planting on a slope or mound with heavy soils if a drying out period is allowed between irrigation cycles. Mimulus Jelly Bean Orange is Winter hardy into the low 20°s F. The branches are easily broken. It is best to site Mimulus Jelly Bean Orange away from traffic, wayward hoses and shortcuts taken by the dogs and kids will readily break off branches. The woody Mimulus species and cultivars are often sold as Diplacus, but the names are in flux. Mimulus Jelly Bean Orange is a great addition to the Butterfly Garden and the Hummingbird Garden. Mimulus is a larval host plant for the Checkerspot and Common Buckeye Butterflies.
