Exquisite lotus main attraction in Monet Pool
By Joe Tomocik, Former Aquatic Collection Curator on Jul 25, 2008
Nelumbo ‘Perry’s Giant Sunburst’ with charming creamy-yellow flowers is the main attraction in the Monet Garden pool. It is near the north entrance to the Japanese Garden amongst a mix of classical hardy waterlilies. ‘Perry’s Giant Sunburst’ was hybridized by lotus king Perry D. Slocum.
