The Water Hawthorn is an admirable plant that is known for its long blooming characteristics — in warmer locations it has blooms at Christmas. 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.

With dark green strap-like leaves, about a foot long, are often mottled with brown or purple blotches and white contrasting coal black stamens.

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 1897 book The Water Garden, by William Tricker, portrays an image of this plant. His selections of aquatic plants has adorned water gardens for decades to come!

About Tricker's
Store Hours
America's Oldest Water Garden Specialist established in 1892
In the 1920s and 1930s, William Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.

William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. 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.
