The Nelumbo nucifera, commonly known as the Indian or Sacred Lotus, is a divine symbol in Asian cultures representing sexual purity and non-attachment. Medicinally, it has been used in the Orient for over 1,500 years, with all parts of the plant having astringent, tonic, and vasodilatory properties. Modern research has also found anticancer activity in certain compounds extracted from the plant. The lotus root, much relished in Chinese cuisine, can be cooked or pickled, while the young leaves are used as a vegetable and can be wrapped in food. The plant requires a rich loam and water up to 7.5 ft deep, favouring warmer temperature in the growing season and a 5-month growth cycle. This ornamental plant has a sweet fruity perfume and is deeply resentful of root disturbance. It can be propagated from seeds or division. Explore the many varieties, with some being hardier than others and suited for outdoor cultivation in favourable conditions. Invest in the Nelumbo nucifera to enjoy its cultural, medicinal, and culinary wonders.
