Monkeyflower Savory, Satureja mimuloides is a perennial with deep red-orange 1-2 inch flowers. It runs by rhizomes to the limit of the water source it is in. This one is native about 15 miles from here in red clay in an area that has a lot of seeps. It froze to the ground here at about 0 and never came back. As long as you have a wet spot in full sun and do not get too cold it should be fine for you. The hummingbirds will like you! Do not cut the flowers on a warm sunny day or you will be bombed by squadrons of hummingbirds! This one has a fragrance like mild spearmint.
