Delicatissima - Tricker Night Blooming Hybrid. One of the first water lilies introduced by William Tricker in 1893 with flowers of light pink. In fact, the introduction of this water lily was at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair (also known as the Chicago Columbian Esposition) and received a medal. Also, in 1894 received a First Class Certificate at Boston. The leaves are slightly crumpled around the margins and have a metallic luster on the upper surface. A superb night bloomer. Tricker wrote of this plant in 1894 as "A delicate and choice flower of a distinct and pleasing carmine pink color; the foliage has a bronzy green luster. The plant is vigorous, yet moderate compared with some others. Desirable for all purposes and proved one of the best for cutting, and also for winter culture."
