'Mrs. C.W. Ward' waterlily was first produced by William Tricker in 1900 and has large blossoms with pointed rose pink petals, golden yellow stamens tipped with pink and are held as much as 15" above the surface of the water. Note the characteristic sepals as they bend down towards the water garden pool surface reflecting an admirable site. Watch as the the flower grows high above the other water lilies and bends the sepals down, almost as trying to proudly show off the beauty of the petals. The pads are a striking green coloration with wavy margins that make a most attractive display. A very strong and wonderful growing water lily that has endured ages of beauty!
