Imperial Concubine Out Of Bath is an OUTSTANDING lotus with STRIKING subtle coloration in shades of yellows, whites and pinks. This amazing specimen will take your breath away! Plant in shallow end of pond or in containers for your patio.
Plant in a wide (16- 30 inch or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil, dig a trench across the surface of the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench, taking care not to damage the growth tips. Bury the tuber in an inch or two of soil leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently add 2-4" of water above surface of the soil, place outside in full sun (8+ hours of sunlight daily), in a week or two you will have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water. Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water, fertilize your lotus by pushing 3-4 fertilizer tabbs gently into the soil around the roots of your lotus, being careful not to damage the roots.
Lotus are very heavy feeders! Feed your lotus monthly with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs during the growing/blooming months (June through September).
