Mimulus bigelovii (Bigelow's monkey flower) is a small-flowered species, but relatively noticeable as it goes in open areas; on gravelly flats and along dry washes, in the Mojave Desert and adjacent regions. The five-lobed flowers are pink, while the inside of the tube is yellow, with some darker purple areas. Leaves are hairy, and green, often with purple edges. The plant size is quite variable, depending on the amount of moisture.
