Shirley Ann was hybridized in 1963 in the aquatic greenhouses at William Tricker, Inc.® by Gil Lambacher and Dr. Charleston and named after their wives. It is an outstanding water lily with beautiful aromatic blue petals that stand out among the thousands of water lilies grown at William Tricker, Inc.®! Gil Lambacher spent his lifetime working at Tricker's and in his retirement in his 90s after his wife passed away, would still visit the greenhouses that he so well knew to visit the abundance of flowers produced by the wonderful blue petalled water lily Shirley Ann. Gil passed on in 2002, however the flowers still bloom and stand as a wonderful tribute that still lives on in our Tricker greenhouses.
