It's another Monkey flower....errrrrr, Diplacus


Mimulus (Diplacus) tricolor

I've wanted to grow this one ever since it showed up on the Oregon T&E lists. Apparently it was once a common inhabitant of the Willamette Valley Vernal pool wetlands complex. But of course the march of progress and humanities incessant conquering of nature for development of land has left much of it's habitat plowed under or paved over.

Hoping it sets seeds because I want to get it established in my ditch, which is as close to the vernal pool as I can get.

Sunny skies and warm weather.

Cheers,
Mark
