PLANT

OF

THE

MONTH

The Asian Lotus 

The beautiful Asian Lotus is a cousin of the yellow colored American Lotus in the Mobile-Tensaw delta. The Asian Lotus is a community garden plant rather than a backyard plant. Come see this plant in two ponds at the Mobile Japanese Garden https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLK8RxCMBRAoPR9ybizVK0K1FmzoZcq5R4

 

Asian lotus, also known as Nelumbo nucifera, or simply lotus, is one of two species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbo naceae. It is often colloquially mistakenly called a water lily. Under favorable circumstances this aquatic perennial may remain viable for many years rooted to the bottom of the pond and spreading across the pond floor.
