RED ROSY LOTUS is a STATUESQUE lotus with large buds and blooms! The flowers are perfectly formed and beautiful with rich color and bright-yellow receptacle along with lush, dark-green foliage. A standout in pots or ponds!
Lotus should be planted in the month of May, after all danger of frost has passed. (Lotus can be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time in your area) Plant in wide, shallow container in heavy loam soil, dig a trench in the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench taking care not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently add 4-6" of water over surface of pot. Place in full sun and fertilize AFTER you have two aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Lotus are very heavy feeders. Fertilizer once a month throughout the growing/blooming season with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates 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. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
