    The product arrived in a timely manner and was in great condition. The Lotus rhizome had two branches with multiple growing buds.

    Great Company

    This was my 3rd order this season. This last one had a little problem (on my part) and I promptly got a phone call from LilyBlooms next day and everything was straightened out. The lotus tuber arrived very quickly and had many sprouts already. So far extremely happy. Will update later in in the season as things progess.
