The 2003 introductions from Mr Donnie Hallman of Deersprings Nursery, South Carolina, USA were waited for with interest, and, as usual were sold out very quickly. Amongst the new introductions was Canna 'Ruby Crout'.
"The flowers are rose to red, spotted, and carry a cream edge. Foliage is very dark. This plant is named after another family member. This is a tall, bold, show stopping plant. When fall comes, the cream edge turns to gold only to make the leaves appear darker. Very nice!", described Mr Hallman.
