Native to Chile and Argentina, this surprisingly hardy little alpine plant is unforgettable. It forms a low, ground-hugging rosette of hairy leaves, with wiry stems rising above in late spring, each bearing a pair of inflated golden yellow pouch flowers, marked with tiny red spots. Appreciates an evenly moist but well drained soil, particularly good in a shady rock garden, alpine trough gardens or gravel screes. Protect from hot afternoon sun.
