Welcome to another Floral Friday!

Yesterday I went to the hardware store and of course couldn’t walk past the plant section.. I totally fell in love with this little guy! A calceolaria, also known as pocketbook flower. Doesn’t it have the coolest looking blossoms?

A few facts about the calceolaria:
  • Calceolaria in Latin means shoemaker
  • Other common names are: pocketbook flower, lady’s purse, slipper flower and slipperwort
  • Flowering time is early spring through late summer
  • Unfortunately they will only bloom once
  • Calceolarias like cool temperatures

    They are different, but beautiful. I’ve never seen anything like it. Such vibrant colors. I wish I could grow them here, but to warm year round.
