The leaves of the lotus, which can be more than 2 or 3 feet across, repel water like quicksilver and have a delicate angel-shaped center. They can be on the surface of the water or up to 3 feet about the water level. The leaves are amazing, but the blooms are worth the drive to see!
The blooms to the lotus are a beautiful buttery yellow with am exotic seed pod in the center. Even after the petals fall away the plant is a sight to see it is textured and organic and frankly out of this world.
