Introducing Canna 'Eva Marie Lleonart'

Submitted by Bernad Yorke, of Australia, it is interesting to be introduced to a southern hemisphere favourite that is unknown in Europe or the USA.

Bernard stated that, "I thought growers would like to see this Australian hybrid developed in the late 1990s...a most attractive dwarf growing canna with beautiful ivory petals featuring broken stripes of pale magenta with the lip being of a darker shade,... this is a hybrid from Cannabrae Gardens in Victoria and will be in collections for a very long time. I am pleased to have this in my collection."

I also understand that Bernard has also used this cultivar in his own breeding programme.
