Lucky Floating Buddha (Hygroryza aristata) is a wonderful floating aquatic plant that will be admired in any water garden pool or aquarium. The plant has outstanding green leaves that rest on the surface of the water and the bulb material made of a spongy material keeps the plant floating. In certain light conditions the leaves develop a deep, attractive purple color. These bulbs form at the base of the leaves. As the plant grows across the surface it will put out more leaves and floating bulbs. Delicate feathery roots come from the bulbous material. The plant will bring luck to all water garden pools.

Click on the bottom images and you will see the Lucky Floating Buddha next to one of our best selling blue flowered water lilies. Have you grown this wonderful blue flowered water lily? The water lily is our popular August Koch. Grow both plants in your water garden pool, they will truly stand out!

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.
