After years of admiring the lotus ponds at The Huntington Library and Gardens and at Echo Park, I thought it may be an interesting project to grow one on my own. As with any goal in life, growing a lotus is a process of several steps starting with research and planning. Fortunately the internet is full of information and options. After an extensive search I settled on Bergen Water Gardens and Nursery, not only for their extensive list of lovely lotus but more importantly for their friendly and personal customer service. Below are a few basic items needed to get started.
With so many varieties, colors and sizes to choose from, making a decision became the most daunting task. I easily contacted Bergen and was able to immediately receive detailed guidance on what would be appropriate for my plans. Below are just a few examples of the multiple variations you will find when visiting their website. https://bergenwatergardens.com/
