One of the most dramatic plants for spilling over the sides of containers, lotus bears soft, silvery foliage and bold, lobster-clawlike flowers in shades of orange, red, and yellow. Many lotus varieties bloom best in spring or fall as cool nighttime temperatures encourage blooms. In warm-winter areas, lotus is a striking evergreen perennial groundcover. It grows best in full sun with well-drained soil.
