Crazy good bloomer!

Another lotus that produces flowers all summer long! This variety is usually covered in cheerful yellow flowers with a heavy petal count. Early flowers usually have petaloid centers but as plants mature a few flowers will produce regular seed pods. It is listed as a large/tall variety, but it stays a little shorter in our pots.

 

Flower Color: Yellow with a hint of green
Plant Height: Medium/Tall, 36” and taller
Flower Type: Multi-petal, more than 50 petals
Pot Size: 20” and wider, 12”-18” deep

 

 How do I fertilize lotus? When do I begin to fertilize lotus?

Wait until the lotus plant has several floating leaves or begins to put up aerial leaves before adding fertilizer. Choose a good fertilizer such as Waterlily World Tablets, Pondtabbs or Landon’s Aquatic Fertilizer and follow the instructions carefully. The amount of fertilizer to use is usually based on the size of the pot and the amount of soil in the pot. For example, most of the small tablets are added at a ratio of 1-2 tablets per gallon of soil in the pot. Once the lotus has started to grow vigorously tablets can be added every 3-4 weeks. Stop fertilizing in late summer to allow the lotus to use up all the fertilizer in the pot before going dormant. This encourages the lotus to form better tubers.
