Great pastel lemon calceolaria for the border.
We released our own strain of this wonderfully large flowering border Calceolaria in spring 2019. Its a real delight and eyecatcher with its thick stems leading to large cluster heads of pastel lemon flowers raised high over large lemon foliage. This once established is hard to damage as survived even the harshest environments we could throw at it. We recommend placing in the border or large alpine rock garden. We have also had great success in containers although it will out compete other plants. A real joy to have for sale.
Cut back slightly into foliage in early October to shape plant for following years blooms. This plant will reshoot from the base.
