Charles B. Thomas

It is with sadness that we note the passing of Charles Thomas on December 7, 2020.

In 1984, Charles founded the International Waterlily and Water Garden Society, and remained a pillar of the water garden community to this day.

Charles was inducted into the IWGS Hall of Fame in 1991, for his outstanding dedication to the furtherance of water gardening throughout the world.
