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?
- 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
