If the flowers are heart-shaped, it's almost certainly a Dicentra, or bleeding heart. If the flowers are pouch-shaped, it could be calceolaria, or 'pocketbook plant', Nematanthus which is commonly called "Goldfish" plant, Slipperwort, or even lady's slipper orchid. Without additional descriptions of the entire plant, I can't say for certain. Hope this information is helpful!
