Fragrant Perennials
RED RUSSIAN LOTUS Nelumbo nucifera         $2.50
This large and very beautiful plant is native to the Volga river delta where it enters the Caspian Sea. The rosy red flowers can be ten inches across when fully open and held up to five feet above the water’s surface. The round perfoliate leaves, up to 20 inches in diameter, are blue-green with a waxy coating on which water beads up like mercury. The plants manage to overwinter by forming banana-shaped tubers below the frost line. Along with the tree peony, one of the most exotic of hardy plants. The showerhead like pods are often used in dried arrangements. Three seeds, $2.50.
