Botanical Name: Nymphaea 'Gloriosa'

Item #: 10-3004

The Nymphaea 'Gloriosa', is one of most popular among the hardy water lilies.

Appearance. The flowers are brilliant red with variegated sepals in rose and green that withstand hot and cooler weather. The stamens are colored a reddish orange.

Benefits. The blossoms have a pleasant odor of apple blossoms. 'Gloriosa' offers a landing pad for bees to drink, above shelter for your aquatic animals, and the pad shadows help to prevent algae growth.

Maintenance. As other water lilies, 'Gloriosa' prefers standing water with no fountains or currents. That is why you don't see water lilies in rivers, streams, or creeks. Do not use soil with herbicies or pesticides. Avoid potting soil or other mixes that have floating components such as sticks. You can start at a depth close to the surface for stronger sun rays and warmer temperatures. Then, move the container deeper as it grows and gets established. Keep the planter below the winter freezing line. Cutting flowers for decorative purposes indoors may stimulate continued growth in the pond.

This water lily has been one of our customers' favorite water lilies. Your guests will definitely admire it in your pond.

Hybridized By: In 1896, 'Gloriosa' was hybridized by the famous botanist M. Marliac who received the Award of Merit by the Royal Horticulture Society.

Size: The petals can grow from 3" to 6" long in a cup and star-shaped formation. The pads can grow to 8-9". New leaves are light purple that turns a mottled green as it ages.

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.
