Disclaimer: Foraging can be fun, rewarding and provide health benefits. As a novice forager, I will be sharing my foraging experiences. However, in order to be safe, always consult with local foraging experts and guidebooks before beginning foraging. Children should learn to forage safely by being guided by experienced adults. Never ingest anything unless you are certain of the identification and safety of the plant. Some plant species are inedible and some are poisonous.

Allegheny Monkeyflower (Mimulus ringens): Images

Date Location Notes Images
July 21, 2010 Southeastern, New Hampshire Found my first Monkeyflower (Mimulus) on the trail opposite from a Broadleaf Cattail and Pickerel Weed marsh. As can be seen, the Allegheny Monkeyflower is purple and yellow and some say looks like a money's face. The lower part of the flower has three lobes and the upper part has two lobes. The leaves are opposite and tend to clasp the square stem (no petioles -- sessile).
