A charming, semi-evergreen (evergreen in a mild winter) shrub. From Chile, it has erect branches and neat and tidy foliage. During summer it produces panicles of lavander flowers. Closely related to Calceolaria, they bear a marked resemblance to those flowers but are two-lipped and distinctly bell-shaped. Needs a warm, sheltered, sunny spot. Our specimen is grown on a south facing in the Upper Walled Garden.
