Pocketbook Plant gets its name from the puffy, brightly colored flowers that look like pouches or slippers. Other common names for this unusual-looking plant are Slipper Flower and Slipperwort.
Clusters of these glorious, pouch-shaped blooms grow on tall stems above soft, light-green leaves. The heart-shaped leaves are deeply veined with scalloped edges.
Calceolaria is a biennial plant.
Keep your plant cool and moist and you’ll enjoy its masses of blooms for several weeks. Do not fertilize while in bloom.
