The Southern Bush Monkeyflower or Sticky Monkeyflower is a vibrant and eye-catching perennial wildflower native to Southwestern California and Baja. It is celebrated for its striking, long-tubed, and brightly colored flowers which cascade beautifully in natural landscapes. Often found on hillsides and protected cliffs, the plants are inconspicuous, only making themselves known when they produce their spring/summer display. The blooms range from white to yellow to orange, and are a favorite for hummingbirds and other pollinators.
