Lotus Paradise

Bergen Water Gardens  grows the largest collection of Chinese lotus in North America. We are proud of our magnificent lotus paradise. Overall the past several years, we have researched and sought out the best Chinese Lotus from China. In 2017 we will grow over 150 varieties of lotus, including 35 cultivars of bowl lotus.

Throughout 2017 we will expand our display lotus ponds. Our growing area will feature over 900 pots of lotus to examine and photograph. We invite you to visit Bergen Water Gardens during the summer of 2017 and experience our lotus paradise.

Lotus tubers may be ordered here from December 2016 until May 2017 or as supplies last. Learn how to pot lotus tubers

  1. Wow, I never knew so many lotus colours were out there. I live in Australia and not sure if we can buy seed. But I’d surely love to be able too. Amazing and so beautiful

    • Linda, Lotus are sun plants and need at least 6 hours of full sun to grow well and bloom. Unfortunately we do not have any observations yet from people succeeding with “X” variety in low light as almost all of our varieties are new to the USA market and USA growing conditions. Cold hardiness is not a problem as long as the tuber does not freeze solid…either dropping it to the bottom of the pond for winter or inside in a cold basement. I can not honestly say try this variety in low light and it will flower.. we just do not know yet! Perhaps grow the lotus in a pot in sunnier location?

  3. This summer, do you sell the lotus in the pot? I lived in Philadelphia, but i will drive to NY to buy it. I love your lotus alot. If i buy the tuber, i dont know how to grow them. Thank you very much.

    • We do sell lotus plants at Bergen Water Gardens. You are welcome to visit our store, please check the hours posted on the website. Lotus plants will not be available until until mid May. If you see a certain variety you like, please let us know as it could be in limited supply.

  4. Can you tell me if you have a good selection of potted Lotus plants now? I definitely want a pretty pink one. I love Magnificent, Super Excellent, purple fairy no. 2.

    • We have over 100 lotus potted but with the recent cold weather and rain they are growing very slowly. Hopefully they will pick up by the end of May. We will have to check our inventory at the store to see if these varieties are available. Thank you

  6. I have just checked out your website and want to order some of Lotus tubers. However, many kind of them were marked “out of stock”. Which one do you have right now?

    I live in North of California. How much do you charge for the shipping?


    • the 2017 season ended in early June. Lotus tubers will not ship again until next mid March through the end of May 2018. The 2018 selection of lotus tubers should be available by mid November on the website for pre-order. Shipping in 2018 will be included in the cost of the tuber, that is our current plan.
