Introducing Canna 'Wye'

A small aquatic cultivar, equally at home as a water marginal or in the border; glaucous green foliage, lanceolate shaped, upright habit; spikes of flowers are reflexed, pink tinged with canary-yellow, staminodes are narrow, edges irregular, petals yellow, fully self-cleaning, good bloomer; fertile both ways, self-pollinating and true to type, capsules ellipsoid; rhizomes are long and thin, coloured white; tillering is average.

Introduced by Malcolm Dalebö, Claines Canna Collection, Worcester, England, EU in 2006. It is a seedling of C. ‘Teme’ x self.

The Claines Canna Aquatics have been bred to populate garden ponds that are just a few metres square, compared with the much larger Longwood Aquatics destined for huge ponds and lakes.
