Change the label for Mimulus!

Everyone who bought Mimulus – given as alsinoides in the shop – it flowered in my garden and it seems to be M. guttatus – my apologies.

I hope no one gets upset; after all, guttatus has these large, bright yellow flowers, and it’s a short form!

Mimulus guttatus – bad picture, it was very windy

When collecting seeds from a new region for the first time, mistakes are bound to happen (more than usual). When I collected the seeds, all I could see were a few almost faded flowers of M. alsinoides, so it is possible that both species are mixed in the seeds harvested and sent.
