Botanical Name: Nymphaea 'James Brydon'

Item #: 10-3007

The James Brydon Water Lily was developed in 1899 by noted horticulturist from Massachusetts, James Brydon (1859-1901). The water lily was distributed by William Tricker who named it in his honor. The water lily was given the Award of Merit by the Royal Horticulture Society in 1906.

The deep red watermelon blossoms have a metallic sheen. A fragrance is held close iin the cup shaped flowers smelling like sweet apples. Dark orange stamens are brightly tipped with a contrasting yellow.

It grows with minimal maintenance and will be okay in partially shaded ponds. James Brydon is truly a variety that stands out in a class of its own and will make a wonderful addition to your water garden pool.

At our nursery, this is the one of most impressive of the hardy water lilies. The horticulturist James Brydon passed on in 1901 and we hope you will grow this fine American hardy variety and witness the reason it is still, decades later, one of the best of selections today.

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.
