Echo Park Lake lotus plants are fine - expert

ECHO PARK, LOS ANGELES

But the man who sold the plants to the city says not to worry. Horticulturist Randy McDonald says the plants are fine, despite their brown color.

Because they are perennial flowers, they spend part of the year dormant.

The plants died out in 2008 but were replanted last summer.

McDonald says they should begin to bloom again in June.
