Chinese Lotus: Glowing Clouds in Evening & Golden Horse with Jade Belt…

Two more small (tea cup) or exquisite of bowl lotus have been added to the Pond Megastore 2011 Chinese Lotus Collection. Both being small  you want these in a small container with only about 4 inches of water over the root system. These make wonderful patio gardens and even tabletop gardens.

The reason they are called Tea Cup lotus is that some varieties are small enough to do well in a container the size of a cup. Don’t Believe me? See N. Nopchai Chansilpa’s photo, Mangkala-patum, a bowl lotus growing in coffee cup!
