In Vietnam, Royal lotus is of a very rare variety, which is planted by only a few lotus lovers and bonsai growers. The lotus is small with beautiful flowers, suitable for planting in various conditions such as in ponds, gardens, miniature living landscapes or indoor.

The stem, leaf and flower of this variety are all small, not growing too tall and not occupying a lot of space. Despite modest size, the lotus itself is adorably beautiful. Each flower has a lot of petals laying in order so that every petal has room to shine. Royal lotus has two colors: pink and white serving for different preferences of lotus lovers. If you plant the flower with both colors, your garden will be more sparkling.
