Calceolaria is a perennial, native to Mexico and Chile. It's a bedding plant that's sometimes called Pocketbook Plant because of the pouch-like shape of the flowers. Most plants grow from 9"-15" in height and require full sunshine and regular water during the growing season. Calceolaria will grow nicely in your gardening zone.
