DaBear Lotus is named for Coach Bear Bryant and is a winning number! DaBear Lotus looks amazing when planted in front of taller specimens to give a lush, layered look! DaBear Lotus will be a beautiful addition to your water garden this summer! Grows to 4' when planted in a wide, shallow container!
Crimson, multi-petal flowers are 5 - 6" across and will score points in your pond or on your patio this season.
Plan your DaBear Lotus in a wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil and place in full sun with 2 - 4" of water over the top of the pot. In a week or two you should have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water--a week or two after that you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus with 1/2 the recommended dose of fertilizer.
Fertilize monthly with fertilizer tabbs AFTER you have two standing leaves growing out of the water.
