Lotus “Gold Flash” is a creeping vining semi-deciduous perennial with herbaceous tendencies.
If we get a cold winter it’ll totally defoliate and die back down to the ground, but will reliably come back every year in our mild climate. In Michigan, I can’t be sure, especially up in the U.P.
And then these flame-tip triple flowers get going throughout the spring and summer and the mind boggles at the shock.
Speaking of which, I haven’t played Boggle in about 10 years, since I only ever played with my sister Abby (who prefers Abigail, but you know brothers…) and she lives in Texas.
By the way, those flowers, from stem to tip, are only about an inch.
