Brief description

Mimulus guttatus DC. typically grows in disturbed areas around river banks and is rarely found in the adjacent marshes and wet meadows. This plant species colonises gaps within the established vegetation. It can form large patches where tree cover is low and vegetation is dominated by light-demanding, ruderal and small-sized plant species, especially in the upper reaches of streams (Baus et al. 2010).

Status and distribution in Luxembourg

The western North American Mimulus guttatus DC. was first documented in Luxembourg by Gérard Schmid on 1 September 1998 near the mill on the right bank of the river Attert in the municipality of Useldange (Colling & Krippel 2001: 42).

9 records are accessible through the MNHNL-mdata portal (MNHNL, iNaturalist & GBIF 2019).

Rare to very rare, naturalised; expanding, at least locally, in the wild. Sometimes cultivated for ornamental purposes along watercourses (Lambinon & Verloove 2012: 634).
