Without a doubt, lotus (Nelumbo sp.) are the most stunning plant in the pond and water garden. Some varieties produce leaves up to 24" in diameter and grow over 4' tall. Their blooms may open up to 12" across and are very fragrant. They are winter hardy as long as they are submerged below the ice.
We have many varieties of Lotus plants available at our location for sale by June 1st. But because they are fragile, we do not ship them.
