Calceolaria (Slipperwort)

Slipperworts, Ladie's Purses or Pocketbook Flowers belong to a diverse genus native from the Andes in South America extending northwards to Mexico. They are subtropical or winter hardy, annuals, biennials or woody sub shrubs with showy, inflated flowers in bright yellow or purple on graceful stems. They are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter keep non hardy plants drier at a minimum of some 10°C, excellent in a frostfree greenhouse or wintergarden. Winter hardy members prefer a well drained soil in a protected spot in the garden with shelter from excessive winter wetness. Excellent in the rock garden.
Sow dust like seeds on top of any well drained substrate, do not cover with soil and keep pots in full sun at some 20°C throughout the year and soil always slightly moist from beneath. A temperature drop at night down to some 10°C to 15°C will significantly enhance germination in several species. Winter hardy species should be transplanted to the garden as soon as they are strong enough from late spring to summer.
40 seeds per package.
