Item #: 10-3001

The Comanche water lily is one of the finest changeable water lilies we've seen. It stands proud above the water's surface with rich apricot flowers that and changes to a deep coppery bronze.

The field of brown-patched olive green pads makes it different that other water lilies.

The Comanche is a glorious centerpiece for medium to large water gardens. It grows well in limited sunlight and needs a large container of soil.

Tricker's has been offering this variety for several decades.

Hybridized By: The prolific plant was developed by the famous world hybridizer Marliac in 1908.

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

In the early 1890's, He earned a reputation as a leader in aquatice from hybridiing water lilies. His water lily nursery and company was formed in both Ohio and Pennsylvania and each were passed down to his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation.
