Parrot’s Beak

Lotus berthelotii

Lotus berthelotii or Parrot’s Beak. An evergreen, trailing perennial that has slender branches covered in fine, silvery-grey, needle-like leaves. Its ‘carpet like’ habit makes it the perfect groundcover in a garden.

During late spring and early summer these Lotus explode in a mat of bright orange/red or yellow flowers amongst their contrasting foliage. These striking, unusual flowers are sickle-shaped with a prominent beak and look very much like a parrot’s beak or lobster’s claws.
