Gladstone. Considered the King of the Whites, surpassing all of the other lilies in size and freedom of bloom. Famous water gardener George Richardson of Lordstown, Ohio introduced this lily from his establishment in 1894 and it was given the Award of Merit by the Royal Horticulture Society. The plant flowers very profusely and with a rather sweet fragrance . Leaf stalks are striped brown, dark green leaves circular and large, and stand out of the water when well established. Flowers are pure white and cup shaped. Stamens appear as clusters of gold threads. It is a vigorous grower. After growing acres of water lilies in northern Ohio, Geroge Richardson said of his award winning water lily that "Gladstone is an elegant grower. It is among the first to bloom in the spring and continues to frost. The blossoms are produced in abundance...and is the clearest sparkling white flower of any known water lily."
