Large Versicolor Lotus has giant 10-14" creamy white blooms with purple picotee.
Buds have purple markings as well.
Inner petals are tipped with light green!
A very beautiful, show-stopping lotus!
Plant in large, wide, shallow containers or in your pond.
Plant in heavy loam soil in full sun with 6-8" of water over lotus tuber. Fertilize monthly with fertilizer tabbs when two aerial leaves are growing up out of the water.
(Lotus tubers are edible, when planting as a vegetable rather than as an ornamental flower, tubers must be grown in large, shallow ponds.)
