Judge Hitchcock. In 1941, famous hybridizer, George Pring of the Missouri Botanical Gardens, introduced this water lily that has large, very fragrant flowers that show three beautiful shades of blue-violet. A trait that is most admirable. Leaves are small, dark green flecked reddish brown on top and purple beneath. A lily that would stand out in any garden.

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

William Tricker (1853-1916) started commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's. He began experimenting in hybridizing water lilies and what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants has withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, hybridization of water lilies gave him a reputation as a leader in aquatic plants. He established a water lily nursery and company in both Ohio and Pennsylvania that were passed down to his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker catalog was mailed to customers across the nation.
