Canna ‘Rosebud Cream Supreme’


Another New Year and another new Canna cultivar. Bernard Yorke has released details of another of his new varieties, lauding in the long name of Canna ‘Rosebud Cream Supreme’, but one which Bernard feels sums up its outstanding features correctly.
A tall Australian Group cultivar; dark green foliage, oval and cupped shaped, maroon margin, upright habit; spikes of flowers are cupped, pale-rose and cream, staminodes are large, edges serrated, fully self-cleaning, outstanding bloomer; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose. Introduced by Bernard Yorke, Queensland, Australia in 2008.

A hand-cross between Canna ‘Red Stripe’ x C. ‘Bengal Tiger’. Bernard confided that, “From this cross, I have obtained several Look alike Wyomings… in fact, their blooms are somewhat larger than Wyoming. With this cross, there were, to my mind, a lot of trash types, but I still have quite a few of them growing as they may be good for hybridizing on account of their vigorous stock.”
