Item #: 10-6048
In the early years of water gardening many tropical water lilies were admired and selected not only for their beauty, but fragrance. This fragrance was brought indoors by cutting the water lily flowers and placing in a bowl of water in the home. The water lilies would bring this beautiful sight and fragrance to the home!

The image you see is from the back cover of William Tricker's catalog in 1926 and shows the water lilies you will recieve in this perfect for cut flowers and fragrance collection:
  1. Panama-Pacific (reddish-purple flower)
  2. Mrs. Edwards Whitaker (lavender-blue flowers)
  3. Alice Tricker (white flowers).

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.
