Nelumbo 'Sparkle' Pink Hardy Water Lotus
Sparkle is well named, as the mult-petal pink blooms seem to sparkle with a glitter as they age from a deeper to a lighter pink. A good bloomer, with large flowers for the size of the plant!
SIZE: MEDIUM: (Height 3' to 5', Medium Spread)
Planting Container: We recommend a 4 1/2 Gallon Solid Planting Container or a 5 Gallon Solid Planting Container.

Lotus are sold as bare root tubers, or sometimes later in the Spring as runners with small leaves. The growing points are fragile, and must be handled very carefully.
