I am a newcomer to lotus growing, but this plant has been a pleasure. The fuzzy leaves are held well above the water as is the beautiful flower (only one so far). Feed it well, give it plenty of strong sunshine and a water depth between 6" and 18", sit back and enjoy. Contrary to what many believe, lotuses are quite hardy if given a covering of water. This beauty came through last winter's -15C with flying colours.
