Yes - Blue Lotus is tropical, coming from Egypt. However, it grows extremely fast, and a small plant bought in spring will grow MASSIVE before fall.

I'm trying to over winter one in the dungeon laboratory.

I'll tell you a secret. The blossom in wine works with pretty much any water lily or lotus. If you can't find a blue lotus, almost all tropical blue water lilies are cultivars of blue lotus anyway, and after a couple of generations (plant to seed, seed to plant, plant to seed, etc.) and it will revert to the wild form.
