Canna ‘Soudan’

A medium sized Italian Group cultivar; dark foliage, large, ovoid shaped, branching habit; flowers are open, self-coloured orange, staminodes are large, edges lightly frilled, fully self-cleaning, average bloomer; seed is sterile, pollen is low fertile; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured purple.
It had been asserted that this was just a synonym of C. ‘Wyoming’, but Malcolm McFarland has researched this and provided photographic evidence of the differences between the two, clearly showing this to be a distinct and separate variety, although very similar to the Burbank introduced C. ‘Wyoming’.
