Komarov's lotus (lat. Nelumbo nucifera var. Komarov, Nelumbo komarovii), or synonymous Nut-bearing lotus (lat. Nelumbo nucifera)

A species of perennial herbaceous amphibian plants from the genus Lotus (Nelumbo) of the monotypic Lotus family (Nelumbonaceae).

Komarov's lotus is a rare relict plant of the tertiary flora, a representative of the most ancient flowering plants. It is believed that the Komarov lotus is the most cold-loving plant of all lotuses, as it grows in latitudes closest to the permafrost zone.

When they talk about the Komarov lotus, they mean a nut-bearing lotus that grows only in the south of the Far East.

Komarov's lotus is a herbaceous, amphibious plant, perennial. It has a powerful rhizome that fixes the flower in the underwater soil. Lotus leaves are large, beautiful, covered with a special wax that protects the leaves from wetting.

Lotus leaves come in two types: floating or underwater. Lotus flowers are very large, up to 30 cm in diameter, beautiful, and have a faint aroma.

Lotus petals are pink and tend to change color every day, becoming less saturated. In the center of the lotus there is a wide receptacle surrounded by numerous yellow stamens. Subsequently, fruits will appear in the recesses of the receptacle - lotus seeds, which can be used for food; after ripening, they will be destined to fall into the water and give rise to new flowers. The lotus fruit is called a polynut.

The lotus usually blooms in the third ten days of July (mass flowering), bees and beetles flock to the delicate aroma of the flowers and pollinate it.

The entire plant is edible.
