Friendship Peony Lotus (Youyi Mudan Lian) has mouthwatering, lemon chiffon color on this lotus specimen. Luscious, light-yellow, full, cup-shaped blooms with green receptacles make this Sino-American lotus exceptional! CUSTOMER FAVORITE!
Plant this delightful specimen in a wide (24-48 inches wide or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench. Take care not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Add four or five inches of water above the soil and place your lotus container in full sun outdoors. (Lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight per day to grow and bloom). In a week or two you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water, a week or so after that you should have aerial leaves on the surface of the water, once you have aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus.
Lotus are very heavy feeders. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press four to six fertilizer tabbs in the soil near the roots of your lotus, being careful not to 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!
