Mrs. Robert Sawyer - Tricker Water Lily Hybrid

Item #: 10-1070

'Mrs. Robert Sawyer' waterlily was hybridized at William Tricker, Inc.® by Robert Sawyer in 1927 and is known as the FIRST pink tropical water lily of the viviparous type, all others at that time being blue. It is proudly written in our 1927 mail order catalog: "This lily has a gorgeous, full petaled flower much larger than other viviparous types, and it surpasses all other pink tropical lilies in depth of coloring. The plant is vigorous in growth and free flowering." The plant does well in semi-shaded conditions.

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.
