Lotus berthelotii

Lotus berthelotii

''Lotus berthelotii'' is a perennial plant endemic to the Canary Islands, in the genus ''Lotus''. Among its common names are lotus vine flower, parrot beak, pelican beak, and coral gem. This plant is widely cultivated but is either extinct in the wild or persists as a few individuals. In 1884 it was already classed as "exceedingly rare" and plant collection probably hastened its decline.
