Classic, single petal flowers, Friend Red Lotus is a marvelous red lotus with bright-red petals, dancing form and multiple blooms. Bright-yellow receptacles are surrounded by bright- yellow, frilly stamens. Very Stunning! Great in front of taller specimens for a 'layering' effect or lovely in containers for your deck, patio or balcony.
Plant in wide, shallow container or at the shallow end of you pond. Use heavy loam soil and 4-6" of water over top of the lotus tuber, plant in full sun (lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight per day to grow and bloom) and do not fertilize until you have two standing leaves growing out of the water.
Fertilize monthly with WATERLILY WORLD FERTILIZER TABBS + HUMATES for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press four fertilizer tabbs into the soil near the roots of your lotus being careful not to break or damage the roots. Do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season (June through September). Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year! RED/MEDIUM/SINGLE
