Sticky Monkey Flower

Mimulus aurantiacus

Native to the west coast of North America, this semi-evergreen perennial forms a woody, upright shrub of slender, dark green leaves that are sticky to the touch. Vivid, golden-orange, funnel-shaped flowers are lobed, and bloom over a long spring and summer season. Attractive to local and native pollinators, this is an ideal bed and border companion for its color addition and environmental benefit.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
