Frank Trelease. Introduced in 1900 by James Gurney at Tower Grove Park in St. Louis, Missouri. Petals are a glowing crimson color with blossoms often eight to ten inches in size. In historic writings this water lily was considered the "Iridescent Water Lily" with the glowing color shown as dusk approaches. Stamens are dark reddish brown. Leaves are bronze on the top side and mottled greenish brown on the bottom side. After introduction of the Frank Trelease water lily in 1900, the water lily could be found proudly displayed in the water garden pools of botanical establishments. This display can be seen in century old photographs similar to the photograph image of circa 1914. When you click on the image you can be transported back to 1914 and witness the glowing beauty of such a popular lily that has endured so long. Grow Frank Trelease and find out why this night blooming water lily has endured over 110 years of satisfaction! There is absolutely no doubt the dark bronze pads with iridescent flowers will not only amaze you but your friends!

About Tricker's
Store Hours
America's Oldest Water Garden Specialist established in 1892
In the later 1920s and 1930s Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.

William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals that make water gardening easy and fun to do. Purchase with confidence at Tricker's.

William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's when he started 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 aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough 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, and we still do, today.
