@sherrisgarden I don’t know what they are like but the name sounds like a lovely plant 🤗

@godfreye It's pretty great. A trailer that works either as groundcover or elevated in a high container or a hanging basket. Striking claw-shaped flowers that hummingbirds love. 😍

When I bought this plant it was the first time I had ever seen one over here. This one of those, I almost didn't buy plants. Only half way down the aisle and I turned around and changed my mind. I'll update the post, of any progress or changes @jeatacake

@sherrisgarden you’re welcome 😁 thank you for asking ☺️ I had to have one put to sleep 3 weeks back, he got sick suddenly and stopped eating. Tried to help him recover but poor thing gave up and when he started suffering it was cruel to keep him alive for my sake 😞 miss him dearly 🖤 the other 3 are as nutty as ever though 😂 now the leader has gone they’ve all come out of their shells and are more noisy and active than ever 🤣🤣🤣

Yay !! She's grown just enough to graduate into a hanging pot. Already had a hummingbird visit twice in the last few minutes, not sure if it's looking for an actual bird feeder Or maybe looking for a flower on the plant. #lotusberthelotii #lotusvine #lotusvineamazonsunset #hangingpot #hangingplant 8/16/18.
