Zhizun Qianban

 

Nelumbo nucifera

 

Ultimate Thousand Petals was discovered by Dr. Daike Tian in Southern China in 2009. It is a large-sized lotus with a multi-petal pink flower composed of up to 1650 petals. The flower is very long lasting - in fact, some of the outer petals will begin to drop before the flower opens fully so we sometimes open this one by hand so we can enjoy it longer. We definitely suggest a larger pot with deeper soil for this lotus because the flowers are so big and heavy that they will fall over without the extra support!
