The Parrot’s Beak plant, also known as the Lotus berthelotii plant, is a unique and eye-catching trailing plant that belongs to the pea family. Native to the Canary Islands, this plant is characterized by its vibrant orange-red flowers and delicate foliage. With this cascading plant, the perennial plant looks wonderful when used for hanging baskets, containers, and rock gardens. Its distinctive flowers resemble a parrot's beak, hence its common name. Its fine silver-green foliage adds an interesting texture to garden landscapes. The plant typically blooms from late spring to early summer before temperatures rise. The plant thrives in well-draining soil and prefers full sun to partial shade. It requires regular watering to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. It is a drought-tolerant plant that requires minimal watering once established. With proper care, a parrot’s beak can add a pop of color and interest to any garden. Hardiness zones 10-12.

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but you seem to be knowledgable about the flowering plants.

    Most likely these two plants Lily of the valley and this flowering bonsai tree may share the same chemistry.

    Which fertilizer / condition do you recommend to bloom a flowering plant more? 

    Lily of the valley typically doesn’t need any fertilizer unless you have poor soil. If your soil lacks nutrients, you can add a slow-release granular fertilizer in the spring. For Bonsai plants, there is usually specific fertilizer for those plants.

    Wow, I never realized how rich and diverse the symbolism and mythology behind anemone flowers are! Their vibrant colors, cup-shaped blossoms, and unique central cluster make them truly captivating. It’s fascinating to learn about their association with love and protection against evil.Here is more information.

    Yes, they are beautiful flowers.  The link did not have anything to do with anemone flowers, so we did not include it.
