Water Hawthorn (Aponogeton distachyus). A most admirable plant that is known for its long blooming characteristics, and has been known in some locations to be still blooming at Christmas. With dark green strap-like leaves, about a foot long often mottled with brown or purple blotches and white contrasting coal black stamens, make this one of the loveliest of all water plants. They emit a strong fragrance resembling a wild hawthorn, hence the name. If you want an aquatic with fragrant flowers water hawthorn is a must! The plant will be the first to begin blooming in the cool Spring, in any Summer warm water the plant will show signs of dormancy and in the Fall produces a wonderful amount of aromatic blooms well into the winter months as ice begins to form on the pond. William Tricker selected an image of this wonderful plant in his 1897 Book "The Water Garden". His selection has adorned water gardens for decades to come! Do NOT miss a season without the aroma of this most admirable water garden plant!

William Tricker (1853-1916) was an originator of commercial water lily culture in the United States. He began experimenting in the later 1800s growing and hybridizing water lilies. He improved the shape, colors and hardiness of these beautiful aquatic plants.

In the early 1890's, he hybridized magnificent water lilies gave him a reputation as a lead grower of aquatic plants. He established a water lily nursery and company. In 1892, he introduced the first William Tricker catalog. This rare 1892 William Tricker Catalog as well as other water garden historic relics are still with the company.

Many hybrid water lilies were introduced and named by these noted individuals and are still available today. Some are unique and "first of a kind" in their respective classes and can be purchased from William Tricker, Inc.®.
