2021 Nanzhou Buddha Light Lotus will be the showcase lotus in your pond or large container garden this year! The flowers and lotus leaves on this spectacular lotus variety are really very large. The lotus leaves can reach 24 inches diameter! The flowers are big and beautiful! White, multi-petaled, lush, full flowers edged with purple picotee and green sepals. This lotus flower is simply rich in detail! Wide outer petals have beautiful drape and inner petals are shorter giving this lotus a heavenly fullness. The petals have intricate purple veining that add interest and a breath of color over the petals. Give this lotus plenty of room to show off its spectacular beauty! This lotus is beautiful up close as well as at a distance.
Plant your lotus in a very wide container (24 inches wide or wider) using loam soil. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place your lotus where it will receive 8 - 10 hours of sunlight daily. Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Once you have aerial leaves, your first dose of fertilizer will be a 1/2 dose. Lotus are very heavy feeders! Put your lotus on a feeding schedule and feed them every three weeks throughout the growing/blooming season. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth and best bloom.
