Pearls on a Red Plate


Hong Zhan Tuo Zhu

Nelumbo nucifera


Somebody forgot to tell 'Pearls on a Red Plate' that it is supposed to act like a small lotus and only produce a couple of flowers! This little lotus blooms, and blooms, and blooms some more! It is perfect for a pot between 8"-12" wide and about 8" deep so that it can be moved inside for your pleasure when it is blooming (always move it back outside because lotus thrive in full light and lots of heat). We have also grown 'Pearls on a Red Plate' in much smaller pots which reduces the overall size of the lotus; however, it did not slow down the flowers!


Flower Color: Light Red
Plant Height: Medium/Small, Exquisite of Bowl Lotus 
Flower Type: Multi-petal, more than 50 petals
Pot Size: 10” and wider, 6”-10” deep
