Nelumbo nucifera (Lotus), pink - 6 seeds


       Lotus. An aquatic perennial, originally from Indonesia and India. The big circular leaves are floating at the surface and the flowers above it.
This water lily develops a pad with a 3 ft diameter and produces large fragrant pink flowers. The seed and the rhizome are edible. Although tropical it can be grown in cooler zones if the rhizome can be covered and protected sufficiently to keep from freezing. The hard seedcoat requires scarification. Sand the seed until you can just barely see the tan embryo starting to show through. Do not sand into the embryo. Simply place the seeds in water and they will sprout. Bottled, distilled or rain water is recommended. They can also be sown directly into the bottom of ponds or lakes in shallow water. Plants will require full sun for flowering.

6 large seeds.
