I HAVE NO ADDITIONAL INFO...JUST IS IT TOO LATE TO PLANT SEEDS
You might say it is too early to plant monkey flower, Mimulus ringens. The seeds require several months of cold before planting will trigger germination. This is called cold stratification and is common for native plants. Some also require slight moisture during this cold period. Many plant the seeds in fall and let winter do the stratification. Since there are several types of monkey flower, I suggest you do an online search for growing your type from seed. If you don't know your type, location may help determine if there needs to be moisture with the cold stratification. If you don't know the type but know what the flower looks like, search images on the internet for a match.

This was such a beautiful plant with so many blooms!!! Now these spots are just taking over the leaves. Is it rust? I am posting a before and after picture
More likely a fungal issue. Make sure you water from below and don't splash onto the leaves. Make sure soil is well draining and dries slightly between watering. Air flow can help prevent fungus issues.

her 5th grade class project she choose is on "monkey flowers"..will i be able to purchase, grow and have it flower by first week of may?..if so where to buy?..any advice?
Unfortunately, these require 10 weeks in cold stratification before they will even begin the germination process.
We do not recommend places for purchase, but you may be able to find, already, stratified seeds that may, at least, germinate in your time frame. I would check online nurseries.
II live in Seattle.
Yes, it is.
I am in zone 6, too, and mine just put on its first bloom yesterday. They are North American natives, so I would not fertilize it. They need full sun to part shade and like moist soil.
Once they start blooming, they should continue the rest of the summer.
