Carolina Queen Lotus has MAJESTIC, 10-12" flowers that are a rich-warm pink with a blush of orange.
Absolutely spectacular! Bright-yellow receptacles and stamens add a sunny touch to Carolina Queen Lotus, a tall, pink, single-petal lotus.
Plant your Carolina Queen Lotus Tuber inalarge, wide, shallow container with loam soil (topsoil mixed with clay, will hold together if you grab it) and 6-8" of water over top of pot.
Plant in full sun and fertilize once you have 2 aerial leaves standing above the water. Fertilize monthly with fertilizer tabbs. Since this a large lotus, some customers will consider this lotus specimen as a desirable, edible vegetable.
If you are planting this lotus as a vegetable rather than an ornamental flower, it must be planted in a large shallow pond and tubers must reach 2-4" in diameter, for edible consumption.
