Deacon DeGarmeaux Lotus is one of our most treasured lotus and all the proceeds from the sale of this lotus go to children's charities. The Deacon DeGarmeaux Lotus was named for a bright, beautiful little boy who died much too soon, 4/30/08 - 3/21/11. Exquisite red blooms and strong, attractive, medium green foliage on this tall, single petal lotus. A lovely remembrance lotus that will enhance any water garden feature.
Because this is a large lotus, some customers may choose to plant this as an edible vegetable, rather than an ornamental flower.
Lotus tubers are edible and often found in Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian and Japanese diets. When planting as a vegetable rather than an ornamental flower, you must plant lotus in a large, shallow pond, rather than a container and grow the tubers 2-4 inches in diameter for cooking purposes.
