Zone 8, You are so lucky-it must be warm there. You can pot up your plants and get started. Search for what and how to pot up your lotus and lilies in this pond/water garden site. They have different needs and I remember reading some good instructions in days gone by. I ordered mine yesterday and can't wait for them to get here. Which lotus did you get?

I have been doing a lot of reading about planting lotus and boy is it scary. I hope they wait to send mine until closer to warm weather. I like this web site the most--

RE: water lotus

I would probably put them at the bottom of the pond. As it warms up, bring them up. With a new lotus, the one thing you don't want to happen is for them to sprout leaves, and then it turns cold again. That can kill a new one.
So I would just keep it protected as deep as possible, then bring them up when its consistently warm.
