Aquatic Pond Plant

White Lotus

Chawan Basu


Chawan Basu Lotus  Nelumbo nucifera ‘Chawan Basu’ is a  Semi dwarf variety of the Lotus plant. It grows 2 to 3′ tall.   This beautiful creamy white single flower is edged in deep pink and measures 5 to 7 inches across.

The dark green leaves grows 14 to 16 inches across with the classic raising well above the water surface. This lotus flower can be successfully grown in “tubs” in or around your pond. Large containers will work as well.  Just be sure to keep them wet, and by wet the professionals mean VERY wet. Usually there should be at least two inches of water above the ground soil in which you plant your lotus flower. They love the soil, however they are very thirsty plants, which is why the Koi pond or garden pond conditions are perfect. Just remembering not to place your lotus plant to deep in the water. No more than three inches above the soil at first. Some Lotus can gradualy be  lowered to deeper water.

Like so many aquatic plants can be this is a very showy free flowering semi-dwarf lotus. Producing flowers sometimes until late September.

Excellent for small ponds, tub gardens or water gardens.  Hardy zone 4 or higher, less than 4 with winter protection

Tubers available mid January until March  Lotus are generally started inside in late winter so that they bloom the same year.   More information on growing lotus feel free  to call us.

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS: FULL SUN  WATER DEPTH: 3″ TO 24″ (Maximum water depth is for mature lotus)  USDA HARDINESS ZONES: 4-11
