    Any botanists on board?

    Can anyone identify this flower? It's growing wild in my gravel drive, never seen one before. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the responses. There is a consensus for Mimulus so I will go with that. We have never seen it before, certainly have not cultivated it.

    I would have thought someone with a horticultural screen name could have been a bit more specific.

    Monkey Plant or mimulus it will seed itself and come every year! If you pick it up and cover it with soil you will have a flush of flower all summer and every year afterwards.
