2021 Splendid Sunset Lotus is a delightful, single-petal lotus that grows 2 - 4 feet tall with sunny-yellow tones throughout the petals with gently kissed pink petal tips. Yellow-gold receptacles and stamens and green foliage complement this lotus nicely. This is a versicolor lotus with all the tones of a shimmering sunset at dusk in shades of yellow, pink and gold! The green foliage adds to the splendor of this lovely lotus!
How To Plant Your Lotus Tuber
Plant Splendid Sunset Lotus in a wide container (20 inches or wider) using loam soil. Add 4 inches of water above the soil and place where your lotus will receive 8 - 10 hours of sunlight daily.
How And When To Fertilize Your Lotus
Do not fertilize your lotus until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus. Use 1/2 the recommended dosage for this medium sized lotus which will be 2 fertilizer tabs for the first fertilizer application. Simply press the tabs into the soil of your lotus container. Fertilize with four fertilizer tabs every three weeks throughout the growing and blooming season, making the last fertilizer application in early September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth and best bloom.
