Lotus are the Crown Jewels of any Water Garden. Elegant and stately, they rise high above the water, unlike Water Lilies which float on the surface. Truly magnificent, Lotus are shrouded in symbolism by many cultures. Representing fortune, purity, beauty, rebirth, and enlightenment. Lotus attained this mystical stature by the way they grow: buried in the dark muck and mud of a pond, they persevere to reach the light. Unscathed by the muddy darkness, Lotus prove adversity is nothing in the face of determination. Adding one of these jewels to your pond can serve as a friendly reminder that anything is possible. Fertilize regularly in the growing season for optimal results. Lotus require sun, but some afternoon shade is always a good thing. The plants are shipped as tubers, and must be planted as specified. Once established they are extremely Hardy and most require sufficient space for growth. Order early in the season as these tend to sell out by mid Summer. See overwintering care for Lotus.
