Mr Johnny K. Johnson of Kentucky, USA introduced four new varieties in 2003, the last ones he introduced before retiring from hybridising Cannas after suffering a heart condition. Amongst those introduced was Canna 'Wander Lust'.
"The flowers are rich pink with a quarter inch gold edge. Foliage is green.", was how Mr Johnson described his creation. He commented that Mr Donnie Hallman had said "This is one of my favorite pinks. It blooms when other cannas stop in the summer heat. This plant loves heat. Gorgeous!"
"It is fertile both ways. 4' (110 cm) tall.", concluded Mr Johnson.
