Canna ‘Carnaval’


A medium sized cultivar; green foliage, oblong shaped, spreading habit; round stems, coloured green; flowers are open, orange with a yellow margin, staminodes are medium size, low bloomer; fertile both ways, not known if true to type, not self-pollinating, capsules round.

Yet again another Canna naming conflict as a specimen with the same name was introduced by Vilmorin-Andrieux in 1911; its flowers salmon-pink, tinged carmine, edged yellow, leaves green, height over 80 cm. The earliest specimen from Vilmorin-Andrieux is registered at the KAVB.
