I have seen some wonderful photographs of flowering Nelumbo plants. I beleive they were Nelumbo lutea and Nelumbo komarovii.

I am based in the Cambridge area and I want to locate some for a photo shoot. However, I have been struggling to find anywhere that I can photograph them, or somewhere that will sell me mature plants (I have tried Cambridge Botanic Gardens).

I would be very grateful for any recommendations!

Hi all,
There are some Nelumbo plants by the pool in the Tropical Biome of the Princess of Wales pavilion at RBG Kew, but I can't remember them flowering. Last summer I saw some stonking specimens outside, which would have been perfect, but they were at the Wilhelma Zoo in Stuttgart.

cheers Darrel
