Lotus Dunhuang Red (Dunhuang Hong)

If you like Maggie Belle Slocum, you will LOVE Dunhuang Red boasting luscious pink flowers bigger than a dinner plate and broad petals.  As the flower ages, the color becomes a soft pink that almost glows.  This large lotus needs a pot at least 20” or wider and 12” deep soil to allow it to withstand strong winds and keep the heavy flowers and buds from falling.  Great bloomer once it gets going.

Size: Large

Zone: 3 – 10
