Canna 'Gold Mine'

A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage; panicles of flowers are open, self-coloured gold, staminodes are medium size, edges irregular, petals yellow, fully self-cleaning, good bloomer; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white; tillering is average.

Introduced by Marcelle Sheppard, Texas, USA in 1989. Canna 'Gold Mine' does not have spots, just a gold color that doesn't fade. Mrs Sheppard confirmed that this one just came up in a Canna bed, and she had no idea what the parentage might be.
