‘High Cotton’ is a southern favorite. Loves the heat and humidity and shines brightly under the noonday sun. This lovely lotus was grown from a random seed gifted by Dr. Daike Tian. The outer petals are wide and make a perfect plate to hold the more narrow curled petals on the inside. Particularly bright gold stamens surround a lime green receptacle to make this lotus even more unique.

NOTES FROM THE EXPERTS: It is important to handle your lotus tuber with care and not disturb or break the growing tips. Refrigerate your tuber until you are ready to plant. Do not fertilize until you see the first arial leaf, and fertilize lightly until maturity. When mature, a lotus flowers best with regular fertilization. We recommend Chalily Lily and Lotus fertilizer for all flowering aquatic plants.
