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.

      Comments about American Meadows Monkey Flower Seeds:

      I added it to a wildflower meadow I was developing, it was an early bloomer (and remained until it it was completely overwhelmed by grasses, mid-August). I will buy more seed next year, plant them in a more noticeable location where I can see and enjoy them for a longer period of time!

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
