Nelumbo Nucifera

Hybridized by Dr. Daike Tian

Luminescent color! 

Striped petals! Stunning color! Large lotus with HUGE flowers and HUGE tubers! This hybrid was developed by Dr. Daike Tian (War Eagle, Daike!) who says it is better suited for growing in a pond than a pot. However, as you can see from our photos, it is a rock star when blooming in a smaller space, too. This lovely lotus was one of the earliest varieties to produce a flower every year.

Flower Color: Versicolor (Hot 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.
