    These amusing little creatures are Calceolaria uniflora - Darwins Slipper Flower! Discovered by Charles Darwin in his voyage around South America, these unique flowers almost look like little orange penguins marching over the rocks. This is a cool-climate species that probably wont thrive in warm climates. If you can provide the right conditions, its a delightful collectors plant.
