Hardy Water Lotus
The hardy water lotus is the most admired of all pond plants, with its elegant, graceful flowers, vibrant colors, and large leaves. It's no wonder they are a customer favorite. The water lotus is easy to grow, but need to be fertilized as they are big feeders. They can also be invasive; therefore, they need to be potted, so we plant in large tubs.
The water lotus is a perennial pond plant growing from a rhizome tuber. Its rounded leaves can reach large sizes up to 22" inches in diameter. The first leaves that appear are flat and float on the surface of the pond. They are followed by thicker, tube-shaped leaves with wavy edges that may stand anywhere from 2' to 5' feet above the water. The lotus leaves are coated with a hairy growth on which water forms glittering droplets and a thick flower stalk ending in large intense smelling white, pink, or red blooms, appearing one at a time. Each flower lasts from 3 to5 days and gets darker with age. Flowers range in size from 4" to 10" inches. Every pond should have at least one water lotus. Plant anywhere start by digging in a 55gal barrel and leave your plant there all winter without fear of freezing.
