American Three Color Lotus has dreamy, creamy white petals with pink tips and yellow stamens.
A pleasing and elegant color combination that is complemented nicely with the medium green foliage.
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.
Increase blooms by using fish, safe, aquatic fertilizer after aerial leaves have formed on your lotus
