Lewis's monkeyflower (Mimulus lewisii)

Lewis's monkeyflower (Mimulus lewisii) is a California-native wildflower that is endemic to western North America. Its pink to lavender flower petals have considerable hair and are larger than those of many other Mimulus species. The common and scientific names honor Meriwether Lewis, who encountered the perennial herb on the famed Lewis and Clark Expedition.
