    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.

    Calceolaria uniflora. Torres del Paine National Park in Chile is adorned with beautiful vegetation, including the evergreen Embothrium coccineum, which produces vivid red flowers grouped in corymbs, and Calceolaria uniflora, of striking shape and colors.

Paphiopedilium, Lady's Slipper Orchid...astounding!

In 1862, Charles Darwin hypothesized that the large, white, star-shaped orchid was pollinated by a moth with a proboscis long enough to reach the nectar at the bottom of the flower’s 10-16 inchlong spur. Twenty-one years after his death, scientists found the moth with the absurdly long proboscis, Xanthopan morganii praedicta. The orchid - Angraecum sesquipedale -- now is also known as Darwin’s orchid
