A true changeable; double flowers emerge a brilliant pink. By the second day, they are a delicate mix of pink and yellow. On the third day, flowers are primarily yellow. It is quite common to have all three stages on display at the same time, making this a popular hybrid.

Nelumbo Nucifera
The petals of this single flowering species are a soft cream toward the center, with bright pink tips. It is an excellent and sturdy species for the novice lotus grower.

Nelumbo Pink and Yellow
Single pink blooms soften to yellow by the third day. It is an excellent bloomer. The small to medium stature makes it suitable for a variety of situations.

The dark-pink, reddish single flowers sit above medium-sized foliage. The petals are particularly narrow next to the pod, which gives these blossoms a unique look.

Nelumbo Rosy Clouds
Deep pink, almost red single blossoms adorn this medium-sized plant, which is an excellent performer.

Nelumbo lutea
American Lotus ‘Water Chinaquapin’ This American native is easy to grow. Yellow flowers bloom 10 inches above the water. Round blue-green leaves can reach 2 feet. It likes shallow water and can adapt to fairly small ponds.
Flowers: 7 to 11 inches, yellow; leaves 12 to 18 inches; height 2 ½ to 5 feet.

Nelumbo nucifera Sacred Lotus, (Egyptian)
This Asian species is bigger all around than our native species. The flowers, most typically a rose-pink but sometimes red or white, have an arresting aroma, especially when they first open.

Nelumbo nucifear var. rosea Red Lotus
A naturally occurring variety in China and Japan, this is among the bigger lotuses. Its medium-size, anise scented flowers are a rosy pink. The leaves are held more than 4 feet over the water.

Nelumbo cultivar ‘Rosea plena’ Double Rose Lotus

Flowers: to 13 inches, deep rose; leaves 18 inches; height to 5 feet.

Nelumbo cultivar ‘Angel Wings’
It does not take much imagination to see a band of angels in these white, pointed petals, which curl in slightly. As each flower first opens, the central seed capsule is charteuse with a green rim. The wavy, concave leaves may expand to 2 feet wide, but the plant itself rarely reaches 4 feet tall, making it an option for a small pond.
Flowers: 9 inches, white; leaves 18 to 24 inches; height under 4 feet.

Nelumbo cultivar ‘Shirokunshi’ Tulip Lotus
This pure white flower looks even more delicate because it has a mere 16 petals. This one is a good patio choice, since it stays relatively petite.
