Blossoms are truly a royal purple, 6 to 8" in diameter, fragrant, and with golden yellow sepals. It is an excellent grower, ideal for tubs or small pools or that special place in your paradise pool!

It was his family that owned the land in the 1860s that Tricker's historic greenhouses still produce some of the finest water lilies in the world.

About Tricker's
Store Hours

In the later 1920s and 1930s Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.

Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals 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 when he started 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 aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough 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, and we still do, today.
