Ai Jiangnan - Unique color, blue-green leaves!!


Ai Jiangnan

Nelumbo nucifera

One of our favorites!
Spectacular Flowers! Many colors!

Yellow with pink and green tips--now that is unusual! Ai Jiangnan also boasts very deep blue-green leaves once mature. Bright, cheery colors make this lotus a happy choice for your pond or patio. The plate-like flowers are huge when they bloom. The center petals are often frilly like green lace. For us this lotus grows more horizontally,  low and wide, with flowers over the leaves. The first day color of the flowers is stunning!
