Lotus

Nelumbo

The sacred flower of Asian countries launches huge plate-sized leaves from underwater stems and then unfurls spectacular, multipetaled flowers. As the blooms open, they reveal a crown of golden stamens that gradually gives way to a large ornamental seedhead. Lotus plants are quite hardy and can safely spend the winter dormant in a pond. As the weather warms in late spring, the plants will resprout and spin out new foliage. Plant lotus in pots and sink them to a depth of 2 to 6 inches below the water surface for the best display.
