Bob Trickett. In 1949, George Pring, famous hybridizer of the noted Missouri Botanical Gardens, introduced this hybrid named for water lily expert Bob Trickett from England's famous Kew Gardens, London. Flowers are large campanula blue, with yellow center, and are cup shaped. Leaves are large round, green above and red with green veins beneath. Bob Trickett worked with the famous hybridizer George Pring. During the beginning of World War II, in William Tricker, Inc.'s 1942 catalog a photograph of Bob Trickett with a quote "During trying times there is no more worth while diversion than growing water lilies and aquatic plants. There is something about the beauties of a water garden which gives one a mental escape from the troubles and tradegies of the world and fills us with renewed confidence in the eternal triumph of right." We are sure you will feel the reward and honor growing his named water lily this year!
