1930s Blue Beauty at Tricker's

The photo shows a page from the 1932 William Tricker, Inc.® Catalog. It shows, in the bottom left hand corner, William Tricker's Blue Beauty.
Blue Beauty's description in the Tricker 1932 catalog: In color this variety seems to reflect the blue of the summer sky, with stamens marking gold lines over the petals. The flowers are larger than most of the tropical lilies, and come freely and continuously all summer. A collection without Blue Beauty will certainly lack one of the best day blooming varieties.
This is the Tricker's Blue Beauty that you will receive from William Tricker, Inc.® Note the beauty of the buds were also captured in the display!

Tricker's 1935 Catalog shows a pool with Blue Beauty

The water garden pool shown above was displayed in Tricker's 1935 catalog. It was shown to offer a collection of water lilies that would bloom for 24 hours! Since water lilies typically close in the afternoon, the choice of a night bloomer was important. The water lilies in the drawing are Blue Beauty (blue blossoms at the top), the red flowered night bloomer Emily Grant Hutchings (center), and Chromatella (hardy yellow flowered).
