Want an oh-so-pretty yellow Pocketbook for sun? This drought tolerant sun-loving Calceolaria hailing from the Chilean Andes is one tough and floriferous customer! A hardy multi-branching perennial that gets to 30” tall and wide, it produces masses of golden, 1/2” pouched slipper flowers during Spring and early Summer. Ideal for a dry garden bed, adding a splash of sunshine to other muted tones. Can thrive in rocky soils and dense clay alike. Showy in a container. Popular with and pollinated by bees. Cut back in Winter.
