Water garden & lotus plants

Lacon, IL(Zone 5a)

Jeanjanes, there are excellent instructions regarding lotus at

Did the tuber arrive in good shape? I have been leary of ordering lotus on-line (think I just got burned on "buying" a lotus - been two weeks and haven't got it yet). The Plant Place has excellent instructions for lotus, water lilies, and other aquatic plants. Hope this helps!
