The ‘James Brydon’ watermelon blossoms that are a deep shade of red have a shiny, metallic appearance. The flowers, which are shaped like cups, emit a delightful fragrance reminiscent of sweet apples. The stamens, colored in a dark orange hue, have vibrant yellow tips that create a striking contrast.

At our nursery, this is the one of most impressive of the hardy water lilies. The horticulturist James Brydon passed on in 1901 and we hope you will grow this fine American hardy variety and witness the reason it is still, decades later, one of the best of selections today. The ‘James Brydon’ water lily was distributed by William Tricker who named it in James’ honor. The water lily was given the Award of Merit by the Royal Horticulture Society in 1906.

This table shows the estimated shipping weeks for destinations to USA states. These dates can change depending on weather and how strong the plants are at that time. For example, a wet spring will have many clouds leading to less sunshine. Thus, the plants may need a bit longer to grow strong enough for transplanting and transit. With the planet heating up, a warm spring may help the plants grow strong enough to ship before the dates in this table. This applies to pick-ups a well as shipping.
