'Amazon Sunset' Parrot's Beak
- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size
- 6 - 8 Inches
Most Lotus need 40 F nights to induce bloom, but not this vibrant-hued variety. Night temperatures can be as high as 55 - 60 F.
Vibrant red flowers bloom over silvery foliage from spring to summer when night temperatures are below 60^F
Use in hanging baskets, containers and window boxes
Parrot's Beak or Lotus Vine is a great plant that fills the needs for a silver, soft-foliaged plant, as well as a trailing silver plant that flowers. However, the flowering part is short lived, based upon where you live and how fast the temperature rises in the spring. Parrot's Beak needs cool temperatures in order to initiate flowers, and will start and continue to bloom only if the spring temperatures do not climb too fast or spike (when there really is no spring and you fast forward to summer.) If you have warm night temperatures the plant will quickly go out of flower.
