M. ringens is primarily found in damp or saturated areas like moist woods, along stream banks, pond edges, marshes, and flooded grasslands. Its non-aggressive rhizomatous roots make it adept at taking up excess nutrients, making for a healthier pond. While the bright flowers draw in a number of pollinators, but it regularly & happily reseeds. Its name is monkey flower due to the flower’s resemblance to a monkey’s smile!
