Mimulus 'Dos Equis'
Monkey Flower Hybrid
El Nativo Growers, Inc.
Mimulus 'Dos Equis' is a short-lived perennial that in many garden settings may be treated as an annual. Like most of the 'dry', native, Mimulus, it requires well drained soil. In the summer, cut the water significantly and cut back to 4-6". The plant will not look great but it will comeback the following year. Reaches a height of 1-2' by 1-2' W. Flowers are an attractive two tone orange and red. The leaves are glossy green and narrow.
