Calceolaria is also known by several other names, e.g. Slipper Flowers, Pouch Flowers, and Pocketbook Plants. Biennials, they form compact, mound-shapes between 6" and 15" tall. The leaves are deeply textured with scalloped edges but they tend to disappear under the profusion of flowers once it's in bloom.
Who can resist a Geranium? Coming in many varieties with interesting leaves and fairly large, bright flowers, there's a lot to recommend these flowering plants.
Smothered in blooms, Japanese Azaleas make a bright splash in a pot, container, or special place in the garden. Once the flowers are finally finished, the small, glossy, dark green leaves can be appreciated.
Whether you want it for a pot, container, or border display, Marguerites, or Daisies, are beautiful shrubs with gorgeous flowers that just shout 'Summer'! Originating in Macronesia, which includes the Canary Islands, Marguerites generally like a position in full sun and prefer well-drained, poor to moderately fertile soil. Some sub-species prefer partial shade, however, and a moist soil, so if in doubt ask in store for further information on the conditions these Marguerites will thrive best in.
