Monkey musk...sweethearts


Monkey musk...sweethearts (Mimulus guttatus (Common Large Monkey Flower))

Grown from seed collected last year, don't know why but it's got little sweethearts all around the edge of the petals...I've not seen one like it before, what a lovely surprise!

Thanks Indy.Not my usual type of thing but I'm dead proud of it because it's different from all the others! Wish they could bloom in February, would make a cute valentine flower. 8-)

Yep, the whole thing, hearts all over the place, sort of sweet really. Think I might take cuttings for next year, they root easily in a glass of water.
