Canna ‘Gran Canaria’



A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, branching habit; triangular stems, coloured green; spikes of flowers are open, self-coloured pale yellow, staminodes are medium size, edges regular, petals yellow, fully self-cleaning; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white; tillering is slow.

One of the Island Series, in total there are: C. ‘Corsica’, C. ‘Gran Canaria’, C. ‘Kreta’, and C. ‘Madeira’. They were originally propagated as meristem cultures and distributed as small plugs, but apparently Canna does not lend itself easily to that form of culture and they have been removed from widespread commercial production.
