LOTUS BIO:
Long blooming with endless buds, ‘Drunken Concubine’ gets its name from the flying, dancing petal arrangement. Pink petals with dark pink tips catch the eyes first and then the golden receptacle shines like the sun. A classically pure lotus shape, it is beautiful at every stage of flowering from bud to seed pod.

NOTES FROM THE EXPERTS: It is important to handle your lotus tuber with care and not disturb or break the growing tips. Refrigerate your tuber until you are ready to plant. Do not fertilize until you see the first arial leaf, and fertilize lightly until maturity. When mature, a lotus flowers best with regular fertilization. We recommend Chalily Lily and Lotus fertilizer for all flowering aquatic plants.
