Vibrant yellow and red Pocketbook Plant

PocketBook Plant
Slipper Flower

The common name is Pocketbook Plant, also called Slipper Flower & Slipperwort. This unusual looking flowering plant gets it name from the vividly colored flowers that look like slippers or little pouch-like pocketbooks. If you keep your Pocketbook Plant cool and the soil damp, it will bloom for a few weeks. This is an annual plant that blooms in the Spring and will not re-bloom indoors. Most people just throw them out after the flowers have died.
