can itrim down mimulas and will they grow back

Newport, United Kingdom Gb

gone very leggy and snapping off with wind and rain



Is it like the one that I've just posted a picture of?
If so,just snip them off above a new shoot & they will come back & flower.
I do this routinely,a couple of shoots at a time so that they are always in flower.

Yes, if they are the spotty types derived from Mimulus guttatus and M luteus you certainly can cut them back and they often re grow very well even flowering again. Where is your picture?
