A neutral background can be seen behind.; "Sticky Monkey Flower is a common woody subshrub to shrub with bright green sticky vegetation. The leaves are 2-8 cm long, linear to obovate with the edges of the leaves curled under. The flower is commonly yellow-orange color. It is found on rocky hillsides, cliffs, canyon slopes, disturbed areas, and borders of chaparral and open forest communities.
