Russian Red Water Lotus

Russian Red Water Lotus (N.Caspium) Pinkish-red single blooms. Under ideal conditions grows 3-5 feet. Blooms can be 8-12 inches and slightly fragrant.
Leaves 20-24 inches.

Lotuses are found in white, red, yellow and pink colors in general and they grow in shallow and murky waters. Lotus flowers enjoy warm sunlight and are intolerant to cold weather. This is why the Lotus is not seen blossoming in the winter. The floating leaves and Lotus flowers have long stems, which contain air spaces to maintain the buoyancy. The Lotus is native to Asia and flourishes in a wide range of climates from India to China.

Growing a Lotus

  • Place the seeds into a glass of non-chlorinated, warm water.
  • The seeds that float should be thrown away since they are probably not fertile and will only cloud up the water. Change the water every day while you are waiting for them to sprout.
  • Once you see the Lotus roots emerge, pot them in 4-inch pots filled with good garden loam; a depression should be made and one seed should be set in each pot. Cover the root gently with soil or gravel.
  • If you waited too long and the Lotus leaves started to grow, keep them free of soil as you cover the root.
  • The seed should be set in warm water up to 2 inches deep; no more than that.
  • Give the Lotus as much light as possible until the water in your garden warms up to at least 60 degrees F.
  • At this time, plant your Lotuses in larger containers without drainage holes.
  • Lotuses started from seeds will probably not bloom in the first year.

Russian Red, Lotus, Lotus for your pond
