QINGLING RED LOTUS has huge, bowl-shaped blooms in an attractive shade of red with classic single petals. Honors the district in China where it was initially grown.
Plant in full sun in a wide, shallow container in heavy loam soil with 4-7" of water over top of pot. The container would need to be a minimum of 16 inches across, 24-48 inches in diameter would be better inches for this large / tall lotus.
Fertilize monthly once established with two aerial leaves growing out of the water. Lotus are very heavy feeders. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the fertilizer tabbs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, taking care not to damage the roots. Do this each month throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
