'Perry's Giant Sunburst' is a large, showy lotus variety with blooms 20cm (8 inches) across which are held high above the foliage. These blooms are a soft lemon/primrose yellow and beautifully scented. Of the three varieties that we grow, this is the most difficult (i.e. it needs the most warmth), so if you are unsure if your garden is warm enough, we would suggest perhaps trying our easiest variety, 'Pink n Yellow' first.

For the same reason this variety produces the fewest amount of tubers for us to sell each year but demand is high, so please note the waiting list for it is now around 5 years. 

Before purchasing your lotus, please read how to care for it
