Plant Species of the genus Mimulus

Information about this genus
Name: Mimulus
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: In suitably mild climates, the shrubby mimulus are easy to grow provided they are given full sun and a well-drained soil that remains moist through summer. They are quick growing, inclined to become untidy unless routinely pinched back. They tend to be short lived but are readily raised from seed or half-hardened cuttings.
Description: While it is best known for its annuals and perennials, this mostly American genus of some 180 species also includes a few shrubs, vigorous upright plants with stems covered in fine hairs and sticky glands, which may also be present on the leaves. The flowers form in the leaf axils and are short tubes with widely flared throats. The annuals and perennials often have flowers with vividly contrasting color patterns, but this is less common among the shrubs.
