2018 Ken's Dream

 



Nelumbo nucifera



Ken's Dream is a living expression of the cooperation between America and China in the Auburn University Lotus Project. This hybrid was produced by Dr. Daike Tian, a Chinese doctoral student from China working under the supervision of Dr. Ken Tilt, the Project's lead professor from Auburn University. The hybrid is a cross of the American lotus, Nelumbo lutea, and Space Lotus 36, a Chinese lotus that resulted when lotus seeds were sent into space to test lotus seeds' ability to withstand the increased radiation and zero gravity of space travel. This lotus will become the focal point of your garden with its green leaves and very large classic flower. The single-petal flower has very broad creamy white petals that a have a pink picotee on the first day, changing to white with a tiny bead of pink on the apex of the petals by the third day.
