If you have a sunny spot where water stands after a rain, try this beautiful wildflower. It stays short, and when happy, puts on a big show of beautiful blue blooms. (There is also a yellow species of this plant.)
The name? It comes from the "face" of the flower that to some, looks like a monkey. This wildflower reminds many people of pansies. It's native from Canada to Georgia in the east, and grows as far west as Texas. Must have wet ground and full sun.
