(Nelumbo 'Holy Fire') Hardy Water Lotus
Holy Fire has lots of full, multi-petal blooms with varying shades of pink. The new flower is a deep, almost red pink. As it ages, Holy Fire petals extend and drape beautifully, the inner petals becoming a lighter pink than the outer petals. The result is a combination of different pinks on a single bloom, and on large, productive plants a combination of blooms of varying intensity at different stages of development. Very popular!
