THIS IS A HUGE LOTUS!
Yum! Edible seeds
With spectacularly beautiful large blooms, 'Pink Lips' was hybridized by Daike Tian, PhD, Horticulture, when he was a student at Auburn University. 'Pink Lips' needs lots of space but it will be the focal point of your water garden! It is one of our favorite large lotus here at Ten Mile Creek because of its wonderful color and huge, huge flowers! This lotus works well with shorter lotus in front of it for a layered effect. 'Pink Lips' produces large pods filled with seeds that provide a tasty treat!
Flower Color: White with Pink
Plant Height: Tall, 48” and taller
Flower Type: Single or Few, less than 20 petals
Pot Size: 20” and wider, 12”-18” deep
Large lotus varieties need large pots! This is a large lotus variety that needs a pot at least 20” or wider and 12” or more in depth. Be sure to fill the pot at least half full of soil to help offer support and stability for the leaves. Deeper soil allows them to withstand strong winds and keeps the heavy flowers and buds from falling.
