Revisiting Canna 'Petit Poucet'

A miniature Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, branching habit; spikes of flowers are open, yellow speckled with red, staminodes are medium size, edges irregular, petals green, fully self-cleaning; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white; tillering is slow.

We have no information on the background of this little delicacy, and any assistance towards it's history would be appreciated.


  1. Le feuillage a le virus ou un stress ?


  2. Well spotted Raphaël, that was virus, not stress. I destroyed the plant shortly after that photograph. I have not been able to replace it yet, and I do like the happy little flowers.
