Nelumbo nucifera


From the renowned Yileen Gardens in Nanjing, China, Torch of Nanjing is a brilliant dark red single with a lovely shape. It bloomed extremely well for us at the nursery and we think it will become a favorite. Hybridized by Master Ding Yuesheng, this lotus truly has rich color that does not fade and often will open with red stamen tipped in bright red.

Plant Height: Large/ Tall (48"+)
Flower Color: Brilliant Red
Flower Type: Single (less than 25 petals)
Pot Size: 18" or wider, 12"-18" deep

How do I fertilize lotus? When do I begin to fertilize lotus?
Wait until the lotus plant has several floating leaves or begins to put up aerial leaves before adding fertilizer. Choose a good fertilizer such as Waterlily World Tablets, Pondtabbs or Landon's Aquatic Fertilizer and follow the instructions carefully. The amount of fertilizer to use is usually based on the size of the pot and the amount of soil in the pot. For example, most of the small tablets are added at a ratio of 1-2 tablets per gallon of soil in the pot. Once the lotus has started to grow vigorously tablets can be added every 3-4 weeks. Stop fertilizing in late summer to allow the lotus to use up all the fertilizer in the pot before going dormant. This encourages the lotus to form better tubers.
