Calceolaria 'Walter Shrimpton'

Calceolaria 'Walter Shrimpton' (Calceolaria 'Walter Shrimpton')

Likes a moist but well drained, acid soil in sun or partial shade in a cool spot. Intolerant of winter wet. Although recommended for growing in a well ventilated alpine house, it is a martyr to white fly, red spider mites and aphids, fungal infections and the occasional slug/snail attack.

You are a glutton for the demanding plants, Andrew. I admire your dedication.
