Nymphaea caerulea, commonly known as blue lotus or sacred blue lily of the Nile, is a tropical water lily that features day-blooming, star-shaped flowers (to 4-6” across), each with upright, pointed, light blue petals spread flat on the water surface. Each leaf is connected directly to the plant rhizomes by a long leaf stalk (petiole). Flowers typically bloom from July to the end of summer.

Common name: Blue lotus, sacred blue lily.
Color: Blue.
Bloom time: July to September
Height: 0.75 to 1.00 feet.
Difficulty level: Medium.

Planting & Care
This tropical water lily is best grown in still water in full sun to part shade. Plant rhizomes in spring, preferably in small containers. Plant each rhizome at a 45 degree angle with the bud end up and with the bud slightly above the soil surface. Set containers in 9-16” of water (after the water temperature has warmed to about 70 degrees F.) at the bottom of a water garden or tub garden or at the muddy bottom of a small pond.

Sunlight: Full sun.

Soil: Rich clay soil mix.

Water: Wet.

Temprature: 70 degrees F.

Fertilizer: These plants are heavy feeders and will not bloom without lots of fertilizer, so fertilize regularly.

  • For overwintering, bring each container indoors before the first fall frost to a cool dark place, dry over several weeks, find the dormant rhizome in the container and wash it off, place the rhizomes in slightly damp sand or peat in a plastic container, cover the container with a lid (perforated with holes) and keep the container in a cool (about 50-60 degrees F) and dark place for winter (e.
  • g.
  • basement), checking periodically to make sure the sand does not totally dry out.
  • In spring, dust rhizomes with fungicide/bactericide, return them to containers and plant under water as soon as water temperatures return to 70 degrees F.

Culinary use:
  • blue lotus flowers are used to make various concoctions including blue lotus tea, wine and martinis.
  • Recipes for such drinks involve steeping or soaking the petals, about 10–20 grams for up to three weeks.
  • Blue lotus tea is prepared by boiling the entire flowers for 10–20 minutes.

Ornamental use:
  • Water Plant, Rain Garden.
