Chinese or Japanese orgin. Hardy to zones 4-11. Best to plant in no-hole containers at least 2 gallons or bigger. Small lotus. Pink edges that fade to white, single blooms of 4-6 inches. Height of 2-3 feet. Good for cintainers and small to meduim ponds. Will grow in water 3 inches up to 2 feet deep. Another one of Americas favorites. Small, compact and has its own distinct look.

    I bought this lotus from Texas Water Lilies in 2022. I received a runner about 4 inches long. Having had a water garden for almost 35 years I expected the lotus not to bloom until the second year (2023). It aggressively grew and by the end of summer produced 8 flowers. Great lotus leaves grow to 2.5 feet tall flowers are slightly taller with an addictive scent. I grew this lotus in a container in Northern New Jersey (Zone 6).
