  • Lotus blossoms from century-old seed (2019-07-09)
  • A lotus plant, whose seed had been dormant for perhaps hundreds of years, is now in full bloom at the Old Summer Palace, or Yuanmingyuan in Beijing. Eleven seeds were found during an archaeological dig at the palace in 2017, and in 2018 experts chose eight of them to cultivate and conduct experiments, The Beijing News reported. Six seeds successfully germinated and were transplanted to the lotus pool in the palace garden in April, the report said. While all the lotus plants are growing, only one has so far flowered.    Photo by Imaginechina
