Lotus / Traditional 1000 Petals (Qianban Lian)

Traditional 1000 Petals
(Qianban Lian)
Nelumbo nucifera

Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Super-lucky, often forming multi-hearted flowers on the same stem.  But even without these lucky blooms, it has one of the highest petal counts available in a lotus.  Inner petals are deep, dark fuchsia, with outer petals pure pink but maintaining the deep pink tips.  Truly a unique blossom on a large showy lotus.

Size: Large

Zone: 3 – 10
