Can anyone identify the plant in the enc. photo.

United Kingdom Gb

We purchased a tray of 6 of these plants as bedding plants some 3 years ago. We didn't keep the label. We still have three of them that have continued to grow again each year despite being left outside all winter. The shop we purchased them was in Leamington Spa and we live in Cheshire and we haven't seen them anywhere else.




Going by the shape of the flowers, I would venture that this is a Calceolaria, but as there are upwards of 300 species in the genus, I couldn't say which one it is. Very pretty though.
