You might recall reading a tale about Odysseus and the "lotus eaters" in the Odyssey. Well, our lotus pond plants are not narcotics, but their peaceful beauty might lure you to sit by the edge of your water garden and delay work just a little longer. Lotus bare root tubers are hardy, perennial pond plants that will reward you with exotic flowers year after year. They're typically shipped May through September and need water temperatures to be at 60 degrees to plant. Find out "How to Grow and Maintain Lotus Flowers." One of our most popular is the Nelumbo Nucifera Hindu Lotus plant with delicate, light pink to hot pink blooms. Mix it with the Nelumbo Nucifera Green Maiden Lotus for a beautiful effect.
