Canna ‘Jupiter’


A medium sized Italian Group cultivar; green foliage, oblong shaped, branching habit; panicles of flowers are open, scarlet with a narrow yellow margin, staminodes are large, edges irregular, petals purple with farina, not self-cleaning; seed is sterile, pollen is low fertile; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured pink and purple; tillering is prolific.

This is a heritage plant that featured in the 1906 RHS Canna Indoor Trials, without an award. Unfortunately, a cultivar with the same name is registered as having been introduced by Georges Truffaut, France in 1952; flowers reddish carmine, leaves green, height over 80cm.
