Brocade on Red Cloth

Jing Yi Hong Shang

 

Nelumbo nucifera

 

I never expected this one to be a favorite--was I ever wrong!

Loaded with lots flowers that are WAY UP above the leaves, you can see it from across the garden! The vibrant colors of the first day flower of
'Brocade on Red Cloth' are especially pleasing. The outside petals are almost orange while the inside petals are red. The first day flower is very different from the following days not only in color but in shape--very unique!

A very warm red on wide petals circle the golden receptacle surrounded by large milky stamen. The seed pods are perfect for dried flower arrangements!

*Pot size: 
Medium Lotus (24-48” in height): 10-16” wide, 6-8” deep. fill the pot half full of soil.
* Lotus generally prefer wide, shallow pots. Keep the pot size proportional to the height of the plant.

How do I fertilize lotus? When do I start fertilizing 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 such as Waterlily World Tablets and Pondtabbs 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.
