Consider Parrot’s Beak (Lotus berthelotii) as an exotic addition to your summer containers. A semi-evergreen, Parrot’s Beak features lobster-claw shaped flowers in yellow-orange and red, and silvery leaves. Give it well-drained soil because it dislikes wet feet in winter. Plant in full sun and protect from frost.
