Daydreaming in Jinling
(Chinese name: Jinling changxiang)
Majestic, creamy-white blooms with violet-pink tipped petals and regal, green, bubbled carpels that form a crown! A lotus that is fit for Nobility! This early blooming HEAVY BLOOMER is an elegant addition for your water garden feature! STRIKING AND UNUSUAL!
Plant this lotus specimen in a wide (18-30 inches or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a shallow trench across the surface of the soil and place the tuber in the trench, being careful not to damage the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with soil, leaving them exposed. Add a couple of inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. Your lotus needs 8+ hours of sunlight to grow and bloom. In a week or two you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water, DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves you may fertilize with 4 fertilizer tabbs each month, from June through September.
Lotus are very heavy feeders! We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for optimum growth and best bloom! Simply press the fertilizer tabbs into the soil around the roots of your lotus, being careful not to damage the roots.
Type: Medium-Tall Lotus
