    Pocketbook Plant (Calceolaria herbeohybrida) is an interesting annual with unique, puffy blossoms. My 12-year-old daughter fell in love with it early one spring at a nursery, so it came home with us. It bloomed through the spring and well into summer in a shady spot protected from direct sun. The Pocketbook Plant is native to Central and South America.
