This cultivar featured in the 1908 RHS Outdoor Canna Trials at their Wisley gardens, England, EU. It was named for Admiral Winfield Scott Schley (9 October 1839 - 2 October 1911). One of the USA's most distinguished naval heros, his most famous exploit was the Battle of Santiago de Cuba where he commanded the US fleet which completely destroyed the Spanish squadron that tried to run a blockade of the port.
We have twice been offered this variety in exchanges, but the trades never materialised. It is obviously still being grown in the USA in private collections.
