Lotus will not last long,

on the 2nd day, the leaves start dropping

i think the lotus leaves will remain for months .
by the way i like the lotus too and the odor of it .

i love lotus.....and i got some info
When the Olympic Games are held next year, Beihai Park will turn into a large flower garden. Right now, gardeners at the park have selected some 50 different lotus varieties to be planted in the ponds. These lotuses will be planted in three batches so that the flowering season for some varieties, which originally open in July, will be delayed by one month.
We all can enjoy it agian in the coming year.
