2021 Reflection Lotus - Pink and green elongated buds open to huge, majestic flowers in delicate shades of pink! The single-petal flowers are adorned with a fringe of citrusy-orange and a lemon-yellow receptacle. This tall, dependable bloomer blooms all summer long with flowers held high above the emerald-green foliage. Reflection Lotus grows to four feet tall or taller and is an outstanding lotus for ponds or large container gardens.
Plant this lotus in a wide (20 -24 inches or wider) container using loam soil. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location where your lotus will receive at least 8 - 10 hours of sunlight or more, each day. Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
How To Fertilize Your Lotus
Once you have aerial leaves you may begin to feed you lotus. The first dose will be 1/2 dose. Throughout the growing/blooming season, feed your tall lotus every three weeks with 3 - 4 fertilizer tabs, making the last feeding in September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth and best bloom!
