I have been searching for a flower my mother grew when I was a child. I only know it as "Lady Slipper" It was 1'to 2' tall with suculent stems and flowers resemboling "slippers" and when the flowers were spent they turned into seed pods full of "bee bee" sized seeds. I'm not sure if it was an annual or a perennial. Can you help me find this flower?

I'm familiar with Lady's Slipper, otherwise known as Calceolaria scrophulariaceae, a variety of it grows wild in the woods in the area I live in. Fortunately, it is also available from Thompson & Morgan Seed Co. at 1-800-274-7333. Enjoy!
