Golden Autumn Lotus has radiant- white, multi petal flowers that BLOOM EARLY AND OFTEN! This Exquisite of Bowl Lotus has full, lush flowers with high petal count and are simply magnificent!

Receptacles are green later in the summer. A real gem for your container garden on deck or patio!
Plant in medium sized, wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil and keeping the growth tips exposed. Add an inch of water above the soil and place in full sun. Always replace water that has evaporated. Soon coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water, a week or two after the coin leaves you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Lotus are very heavy feeders. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simple press three fertilizer tabbs into 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!
