Item #: 10-1007

Leopardess. Introduced by hybridizer Martin Randig in 1931, with very fragrant, unusual cobalt blue, medium sized blossoms. Leaves are deep green, spotted and striped with maroon, one of the deepest marked leaves among the varieties of water lilies. It is a easy grower and produces an abundance of aromatic flowers during the growing season. If you want to have an outstanding plant, with mottled leaves then this is the one for you! Also, do not forget to review our 2014 introduction of Pink Sapphire water lily that rivals the Leopardess in the class of mottling pads. Purchase both, and you will have a wonderful collection of a cobalt flowered and contrasting pink flowered water lily with truly strikingly mottled pads to show case your water garden pool!

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 (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.
