Beautiful Lotus Blooming time Lapse

Please enjoy this time lapse movie of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden's lotus blooming, shot in June of 2009. Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is in Richmond, VA, just off of interstate 95. The lotus typically bloom in late June and early July --but there is always something fabulous to see at Lewis Ginter.

About the lotus:
The lotus is Mrs. Perry Slocum. Perry Slocum germinated the seed of a cross between the pink Nelumbo nucifera Rosea Plena (oriental lotus) and Nelumbo lutea (native pale yellow lotus).
