Mimulus guttatus, the Common monkey-flower, is a yellow bee-pollinated annual or perennial herbaceous wildflower that grows along the banks of streams and seeps in western North America.[1] 

A highly variable plant, taking many forms, it is a species complex in that there is room to treat some of its forms as different species by some definitions. Mimulus guttatus is 10 to 80 cm tall with disproportionately large, 20 to 40 mm long, tubular flowers. The perennial form spreads with stolons or rhizomes. The stem may be erect or recumbent. In the latter form, roots may develop at leaf nodes. Sometimes dwarfed, it may be hairless or have some hairs. Leaves are opposite, round to oval, usually coarsely and irregularly toothed or lobed. The bright yellow flowers are born on a raceme, most often with five or more flowers. The calyx has five lobes that are much shorter than the flower. Each flower has bilateral symmetry and has two lips. The upper lip usually has two lobs; the lower, three. The lower lip may have one large to many small red to reddish brown spots. The opening to the flower is hairy.[2][3][4][5][6] 
Mimulus guttatus is cultivated in the specialty horticulture trade and available as an ornamental plant for: traditional gardens; natural landscape, native plant, and habitat gardens.

Grateful for the id. Purchased from a local nursery in gwalior. Picture taken on 28.2.10.
Size: 1.5″ across. creeping habit.


I suppose Mimulus puniceus


yes mimulus definitely


Is this Mimulus puniceus?


yes definitely mimulus    


Incidentally it does not tolerate heat. In the heat of Gwalior the plant automatically died leaving behind the charred remains!


Erythranthe lewisii (Pursh) G.L.Nesom & N.S.Fraga


No, it looks different from Mimulus lewisii, in particular the leaves, as per
It should be Erythranthe guttata as per images and details herein.


Hybrid sp. ?? 


Yes, hybrid of Erythranthe guttata as per references herein.

Thank you …, You are right, it is not Mimulus lewisii. There are differences. However it doesn’t look like Erythranthe guttata at all. From what I can gather, Erythranthe guttata always has yellow flowers. I think this plant must be a garden cultivar. There are many of them in the market, like Mimulus magic. 


It is some hybrid of Erythranthe guttata
