We can thank the keen eye of Mark Moore of the Humboldt Botanic Garden for this fine selection of our native sticky monkeyflower. Selected from the remote Mattole Point near the mouth of the Mattole River along the Lost Coast. This selection has particularly beautiful foliage and a compact habit with glossy, dark-green, deeply veined leaves. The abundant, orange, tubular flowers are tucked into the dense foliage which grows 2ft. or so tall and wide. Plant in full sun to light shade with good drainage and occasional summer water. Hummingbirds and bees use the flowers and it is a larval food source for checkerspot and buckeye butterflies. Deer resistant.
