Nelumbo nucifera

Lotus Ai Jiangnan
Spectacular plate-like huge flowers in really unusual colors.  First day cheery yellow with green tips, adding more creamy pink on subsequent days.  Center petals are often frilly like green lace.  This lotus grows more horizontally, low and wide with flowers held above the very deep blue-green leaves.  Simply stunning
