Mimulus x guttatus x luteus x variegatus   Hybrid Monkeyflower DD I

Mimulus x luteus x guttatus x variegatus

Only on very rare occasions do I put on the site a plant which is not mentioned in Stace but this is one. It does look remarkably like Mimulus x robertsii (Hybrid Monkeyflower) which is the common hybrid often incorrectly recorded as Mimulus luteus (Blood-drop Emlets). Mimulus luteus is now known to be uncommon. This is a garden variety which has escaped to a very wild site in Teesdale identified to us by our WFS leader and Teesdale expert Vince Jones.
