'136' is a lotus without a name, it came over from China with a number only.
Lots and lots of bright, beautiful blooms on Lotus # 136!
Early bloomer as well!
First day flowers have a ring of petals around the receptacle which gives it a lovely and unusual look.
You will have 6-8" blooms all summer long!
Plant in large sized, wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil and keeping the growth tips exposed.
Add an inch of water above the soil and place in full sun. Always replace water that has evaporated.
Soon coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water.
DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Fertilize at half strength during the growing/blooming season.
