Photo of Lotus plant from seed, not true to form?

Hello,
I grew a lotus (nelumbo) plant from seeds, but when the flower bloomed, it doesnít look like a lotus you normally would envision (see pic). The seller said that lotus doesnít grow true from seeds and that the colors will not resemble the parent. I canít find anything on the internet about his claim, but does anyone have experience with propagating lotus from seed and having the flower look like a different species?
TIA
