Eugenia de Land Water Lily. This age old water lily is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the class of pink hardy water lilies. Offered in Tricker’s 1913 catalog and became a favorite ever since. William Tricker received a Silver Medal in 1912 (shown in the images from his 1913 Tricker catalog) for this water lily . The rare deep rose-pink multi-petals are long and lanceolate. The water lily was originally introduced by a famous well known aquarist W.B. Shaw. The water lily is a fast grower and makes large flowers that can be admired from a distance. It is a very winter hardy water lily. One of the images shown is Eugenia de Land in Tricker's 1933 catalog, a testament of the long lasting beauty of such a water lily. Robert Sawyer, famous hybridizer of William Tricker, Inc., admired this water lily that he choose an image of Eugenia de Land to be in his 1934 book. Enjoy!
