The internet is divided over the correct spelling of the species! Neither do online sources agree on the hardiness; some references suggest it's hardy to zone 5, but for a plant native to Brazil and Chile, I'm not holding my breath. Sources do agree that this one has yellow flowers with brown markings, with six petals arranged in a bowl shape.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
