Lustrous. This is a William Tricker, Inc. hybrid of our own introduction in 1922 by William Tricker, Inc. while under the leadership of Albert Buskirk. Blossoms are large, of satiny rose-pink shade, and cup-shaped. Sepals are brown underneath and a deep pink inside. Stamens are yellow and in the form of a thick cluster. They are very vigorous growers and seed readily. Our catalog description in its introduction in 1922 read "A new variety of our own introduction. It is a distinct improvement over any known variety of pink water lily. The bloom is large, perfect cup-shaped, with a host of deep rose-pink petals, while the center is closely packed with yellow stamens. There is a peculiar silvery sheen to the color, which gives a wonderful luster". Today, Lustrous still stands out among the pink colored water lilies!
