Description

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.

Flowering: Spring-Summer

Hardiness: Hardy

Height: 40-60cm

Spread: 40cm+

Further information:

Cut back slightly into foliage in early October to shape plant for following years blooms. This plant will reshoot from the base.

    Excellent, strong, healthy plants. Lemon Drops proved to be the hardiest of my Calceolaria collection through this last, challenging winter.

    Hi Steve
    Thank you for taking the time to review your plants. We hope you get many years of joy from them as they establish in your garden.
    Regarding delivery we currently ship all orders form the previous week on the following Wednesday. So if ordered on a Monday it is 10 days till DPD drop it off at your door and if ordered on a Sunday it appears 5 days later. We send in this way due to having 600 varieties it is easier and more environmentally friendly to pick up all previous week plants on the Monday. We then quality control them and place in individual orders for packing on the Wednesday. This is all in the delivery terms on our Website (even I forget to look at other website delivery pages, so please don’t worry you missed this) and on the invoices emailed to you. We hope to be able to ship plants quicker in future but haven’t found a more efficient process yet. Please accept my apologies for the current time frame.
    All the best
    Luke
