Calceolaria  pavonii

This is a very tall (2-3M) perennial which would remain evergreen in mild areas but otherwise dieing back to a root stock and reappearing the following year, not totally hardy (min -2c) but will over winter fine at the base of a warm wall and provide a lot of late summer and autumn interest when it is covered with its yellow slipper flowers set against the wonderful large  furry leaves. It appears to originate in Chile.
