Lotus, Nelumbo nucifera, a mythical aquatic plant, makes gardeners dream with its breathtakingly beautiful bloom. In the pond, its planting and cultivation are easier than it seems. Let yourself be tempted! The lotus, a sacred plant. The lotus (Nelumbo) is a rhizomatous perennial plant belonging to the Nelumbonaceae family. The genus includes two species and many cultivars of aquatic plants growing in tropical or subtropical regions of Asia, northern Australia, and even North America for Nelumbo lutea. The leaves of this last one, of rounded form, develop above the surface of water, covered with an impermeable bloom, the flowers are pale yellow. The sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) is undoubtedly the most spectacular, since its leaves resembling giant plates with corrugated edges can reach more than 80 cm in diameter. The typical species bears white or pink flowers of 25 to 30 cm in diameter, delicately perfumed. There are many cultivars of this lotus, known in the East to represent the spiritual perfection of the Buddha and the possibility for all human beings to reach it too. The fruit, in the characteristic shape of a watering can apple, decorates the center of the petals in a very original way. Once dried, the capsule containing the seeds can be used in the composition of dry bouquets.
