Canna ‘Triumph’


A small Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oblong shaped, spreading habit; round stems, coloured green; panicles of flowers are open, self-coloured scarlet, staminodes are medium size, edges regular; fertile both ways, not true to type or self-pollinating, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white and pink; tillering is average.

Introduced by Antoine Wintzer of The Conard & Jones Co., West Grove, PA, USA. Not to be confused with C. ‘Triomphe’, which was a later introduction. This fine cultivar featured in the 1907 and 1908 RHS Canna Trials, but without award.
