Item #: 10-3043

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.

William Tricker (1853-1916) started commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's. He began experimenting in hybridizing water lilies and what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants has withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, hybridization of water lilies gave him a reputation as a leader in aquatic plants. He established a water lily nursery and company in both Ohio and Pennsylvania that were passed down to his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker catalog was mailed to customers across the nation.
