Double Rose Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera ‘Rosea Plena’)
Double Rose Lotus
Nelumbo nucifera ‘Rosea Plena’
These are some Lotus photos from the BBG. Overall they have a world class collection it was however not presented the best it could have been. That is all I am going to say about it. I got in free because we have a membership at the New York Botanical Garden and it was $12 to park. Afterwards I noticed that there was some free on street parking available.
This is a different cultivar of Lotus and it was quite pretty also.
Even the buds looked good.
”You must be a lotus, unfolding its petals when the sun rises in the sky, unaffected by the slush where it is born or even the water which sustains it!”
Here is a link to an article on the spiritual meaning of the Lotus flower at
