Calceolaria pavonii

Calceolaria pavonii
A remarkable species from Chile. The flowers are typical for the genus - yellow and slipper shaped, but in this case with quite broad pale green sepals behind. The whole flower is over an inch across and the effect is vaguely daffodil-like. Flowers appear over a long period in summer.
Calceolaria pavonii
This is quite a big soft bushy sprawling plant, reputed to be hardy in mild locations in a well-drained sunny spot or dry semi shade. I haven't risked it outside here yet because there isn't much shelter.
1L pots ~ £7
