Taikong Lian 36
Lots of seeds and an edible tuber- Yum! Of course, most people won't choose to eat this lotus because 'Space Lotus 36' has such lovely flowers and seed pods. A Chinese experiment that sent seeds into space to test the absence of gravity on lotus seeds has resulted in spectacularly large and beautiful blooms. Our lotus is descended from seed #36. This lotus is large (over 5') and needs a deep container or plenty of space in your pond.
