Visiting Canna 'Di Bartolo'

A tall Foliage Group cultivar; bronze foliage, oval shaped, spreading habit; round stems, coloured purple; spikes of flowers are erect, self-coloured orient-red, staminodes are long and narrow, 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 purple; tillering is average.

The history of this cultivar is shrouded in mystery, and somehow you feel that it just should be an old heritage variety, but we simply don't know.
