Calceolaria mexicana | Slipper Flower
Slipper Flower, also known as Pocketbook Plant, Lady’s Purse, and Slipperwort, is a unique multi-branching annual flowering plant native to Mexico. It is adapted to shaded moist environments where it lights up the area with its small and abundant bright-yellow slipper or pouch-shaped flowers that are continuously produced from early summer up until the first hard frost. Yellow is considered a rare flower color for shade plants. If you watch closely, you will see bees opening up the pouch to drink the nectar. If allowed to reseed, it can continue to provide interest to the shaded parts of your garden landscape for years.
Makes a fantastic container plant.
