Re: Lotus qstn


Daryl, what's not "true" about the PW Lotus? It's a Lotus hybrid, but I think it's interspecies, not intergenera (sp?). It looks much like a Lotus berthelotii or Lotus maculatus - perhaps a cross of the two? The Nelumbo is what I would think of as not a "true" Lotus - though it looks much more like the picture I've always had in my mind of a Lotus.
Anyway I did find a Lotus berthelotii at Avant Gardens for $6, most of the Nelumbos I found were $40+.

Kitty,

I'm betting they're not after a true lotus, but the Proven Winner Lotus here:

Could be Nelumbo lutea, the native. I just ran down seeds for a woman in Turkey. If so, I'll go look again, but no promises until fall.

One of our MG gardens has asked me to get Lotus nelumbo for their their barrels. Didn't give a common name. Would I be correct in thinking they want Nelumbo nucifera, Sacred Lotus? I can't ask them, they don't know. Also - they plan to put these in half whiskey barrels which in the past they planted with Impatiens. They plan to plant one Agastache 'Tutti Fruiti', 3 Helichrysum 'Limelight', and 3 of these lotus in each barrel. I'm not really grasping the concept. The lotus is a water plant, the other two like dryish soil. I asked her if she was inserting something in the barrel to hol the water plant, but she dodged the question. I mentioned this to the Hort Ed and he says one lotus will be plenty, they get huge.

Any thoughts on all of this?
