A Beautiful Lotus

A beautiful Lotus

This Lotus is named Momo Botan – Nelumbo Double Pink and is one of several growing in my ponds. I do not have any luck with water lilies as the Koi are so big, they tear them to pieces as they go after the roots. Lotus have harder and thicker stems with prickles on them and the Koi tend to leave them alone.

Next year, I plan on more Lotus and I will not even bother with lilies.
