If you're looking for a showy, unique and brightly coloured house plant, look no further than the Calceolaria. Often also referred to as pocketbook plants, slipper flowers or lady's purse, these stunning, decorative species usually have pouches at the bottom of the flower that look a bit like purses or slippers. They generally have showstopping bright yellow and orange blooms, sometimes with red spots. These flowers prefer a cool and not overly bright location and are mostly sold for display indoors. They aren't tall flowers, so you'll need to make sure they won't be overshadowed by other species planted alongside them.
