Z1955 Sacred Water Lily Nelumbo nucifera
This giant tropical lily produces pads up to 3 ft. in diameter and large, fragrant white ( and sometimes pink ) flowers. The seed and rhizome are edible. Can be grown in cooler climates if covered/protected from freezing. The hard seed coat must be filed or nicked, then soaked in warm water for about 15 days until the seed begins to sprout. The sprouting seed then must be anchored to the bottom of the pool. As a novelty, the sprouting seed can be left in a glass of common tap water, and it will begin to grow roots and pads.
