William Falconer - Hardy Water Lily.  Perhaps one of the deepest of the red petaled colored hardies, in fact so dark that they are often described as turning black!   A 1899 hybrid by leading horticulturist and estate gardener James Brydon (1859-1901) of Massachusetts.  The name of the water lily was selected in honor of  William Falconer who was Curator of the Botanic Gardens, Cambridge, MA and later the Director of Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, Pa.  William Falconer was a good friend of William Tricker and James Brydon.   Many nurseries over the decades would select and offer this marvelous hybrid in their mail order catalogs.  One of the images we selected to show is from Tricker's 1922 catalog.  Peterson Henderson, well known aquarist,, in his 1906 historic booklet "The Culture of Water Lilies and Aquarium Plants" also showed a beautiful photograph of a grouping of William Falconer water lilies in a pond.    James Brydon passed on in 1901 and we hope you will grow this wonderful hybrid that has lasted over the decades.  A great grower and extremely hardy in our winters!
