Blue is the predominating color, with mottled effects in red, gold, black, brown, lavender and white. Their active movement displays these colorings. The divided tail fin makes this fish a wonderful sight as it swims within the water garden pool. These fish make any water garden pool a most attractive sight.

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.
