Lotus flowers itself can grow up to 8 inches across (from one petal to another on the opposite side of the flower). The leaves of a lotus flower can grow over 20 inches high, and the entire plant has the capability to grow up to 60 inches (5 feet!) and spread out horizontally up to 9 feet.
Lotus flowers have spiritual meaning in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity. In Buddhism, the lotus flower illustrates the inner transformation of an ordinary person into a Buddha, which begins in the muddy swamp and then blooms into a beautiful flower. Lotus seeds and rhizomes are also used in Asian soups and desserts, such as the Chinese dessert cheng teng.
