Deep, luminous color saturates the large peony-shaped flower of 'Ancient Capital Red Canal'. This lotus hits right at the height boundary between a large and a medium classification when grown in an 18" diameter pot. We have found it to be a quick and early bloomer here at Ten Mile Creek. The color does not fade as the flower ages. 'Red Canal' sometimes has a petaloid formation in the receptacle (center); at other times, the receptacle will produce seeds.
