Gorgeous Lotus | Water Features | Rochester | New York | NY
The Absolutely Gorgeous Lotus is the pinnacle of the water feature gardening season for us. We look forward to seeing the happy blooms sprout up from the surface and those delicate petals unfurl.
These flowers are in a class all their own! Perfectly balanced and gently colored, usually in a white or delicate pink tone, the petals pile softly on top of one another making nothing more than plant perfection. Yeah. We’re BIG fans of this one! We wait through some pretty terrible winter weather to get to see these beauties.
Here Are Some Tips To Keeping Your Lotus Happy & Amazing Year After Year
Keep the Lotus tuber in a pot without holes. Clay is best for the root system to grow easily. The rooting system needs the constant moisture to continue fantastic growth.
The Lotus can be fertilized during the growing season as often as the Water Lily, once a month during the summer will ensure plenty of nutrients for the plant to thrive.
The leaves will yellow much the same way a Water Lilies pads do when they need to be trimmed and removed. The lovely flower however will simply open and its petals will fall off the stem after fully blooming.
The base of the Lotus must be completely submerged in the water, but a shallow plant shelf will reward you with lots of blooms and great growth.
