Revisiting Canna 'Scorch'

A medium sized Foliage Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, branching habit; triangular stems, coloured green; spikes of flowers are erect, self-coloured peach, staminodes are narrow, labellum is peach, stamen is gold with pink spots, style is gold; 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 average.

The foliage has a wide burgundy secondary margin, giving the leaves the look of having been scorched by the sun, hence its name.
