Red Dragonfly Lotus adds some drama to your water garden or pond! Beautiful, three dimensional, multi-petal blooms in rich, rich red! Flower petals are shaped like a dragonfly's wing. Just gorgeous when used in the foreground in front of taller lotus or as a stand alone focal point in your pond.
Plant in wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil. Keep growth tips exposed. Add 4 inches of water above soil and place in full sun. In a week or two you will have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water.
DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Fertilize monthly during the growing/blooming season. We use, sell and recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs. We recommend this product for best bloom and vigorous growth.
