Arc-en-Ciel. This is perhaps one of the most unusual hardy water lilies and is known for its rare lily pads, having blotches of bronze, white, rose, and purple scattered on the deep green pads. The name alone is French for "rainbow". Flowers are sweetly scented, pale salmon-pink in color, shading to white. Sepals are rose splashed. The plant was introduced by the famous French hybridizer Marliac in 1901, however decades later it was lost to the trade. Our good friend and water lily expert Walter Pagels found this very lily in an obscure place during a visit in Japan. Thanks to Walter we are able to continue to offer such a rare water lily from his finding. Limited Supply.

In the early 1890's, he hybridized magnificent water lilies gave him a reputation as a lead grower of aquatic plants. He established a water lily nursery and company. In 1892, he introduced the first William Tricker catalog. This rare 1892 William Tricker Catalog as well as other water garden historic relics are still with the company.
