Mrs. Perry D. Slocum

 

 

Nelumbo nucifera

 

 

 


The queen of all American lotus, 'Mrs. Perry D. Slocum' is a changeable double lotus hybridized by Dr. Perry Slocum. It took us several attempts to get a 'real' one but this one is absolutely perfect - true to Dr. Slocum's pictures and description! Thanks to Kelly Billings for sharing with us so that we can help re-establish this beautiful lotus. Huge flowers are a luminous pink on the first day with broad outer petals forming a platform for the shorter, frilly petals in the center. Each day brings a new color as the flowers change from pink to yellow to cream.
