Lotus berthelotti 'Red Flash'
A creeping groundcover with conifer-like grey-green foliage producing upright scarlet flowers in summer.
Plant in full sun to part shade in well-draining soil with plenty of organic matter mixed through. Feed regularly with a high nitrogen fertiliser. Mulch and water well to establish, but then it becomes quite drought tolerant.
A sprawling groundcover ideally mass planted or hanging over rock walls and borders. Sprawling nature makes it ideal for hanging baskets or pots.
Height to 20cm
