Ruby Gardner


 Nelumbo nucifera



This classic, single-wing lotus needs a very large pot or an earth-bottom pond in order to thrive and live its best life! Collected by Steve Stroupe in an heirloom North Alabama pond, the name had long been forgotten so Steve named it after the pond owner, Mrs. Ruby Gardner. Whatever the name, this lotus is beautiful and definitely needs to be saved!
