We?ve grown shrimp plants for years and always admired their toughness and ability to flower when it?s really hot. The pale yellow/chartreuse ?shrimp? parts of the inflorescence of Lemon Sorbet are know as bracts. The actual flowers are the white portions that protrude through those. These flowers are what the hummingbirds visit for the sugary nectar. Lemon Sorbet Shrimp plant does wonderfully well in beds or containers located in sun or part shaded areas. It?s interesting that if you do an online search and type in Lemon Sorbet along with Shrimp Plant, you get more results for desserts than for the plant.
