Lotus berthelotii

Parrot's Beak

The bright, mostly pea-shaped flowers of the Lotus have been prized since ancient times. Some have edible pods, said to be honey-sweet. Silvery, fine-textured foliage adds to their beauty. Use as a small-scale ground cover, in rock gardens and hanging baskets, or planted along walls where branches can trail. Give good drainage to prevent root rot.
