Taste: Each spotted petal is different on the mimulus flower. The spotted petals have delicate little markings. The flavour is however a little more subtle, starting with a refreshing lettuce-like taste. After this more muted flavour, a subtle bitter taste is present. Although, its not overpowering, which makes Mimulus suitable for sweet and savoury dishes.

Uses: Mimulus are from the Scrophulariaceae family and are best used as a raw garnish. The flowers can be used whole atop a variety of cakes and sweet treats. As well as cakes, these edible flowers can also be used to float on a jug of summer punch. Their vibrant and quirky colours will be sure to catch your guests' eyes! Alternatively, Mimulus can be used in savoury preparations. The most common use as a savoury garnish is to toss the flowers through a salad.

Health Benefits: Mimulus edible flowers, also known as Mimulus Bolanderi, are high in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as flavonoids. As well as being packed with vitamins, a tea of these flowers is also said to be helpful in the treatment of diarrhoea.
