Canna 'Journey's End'

A small Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped; round stems, coloured green; flowers are open, pale yellow heavily spotted with rose-red, staminodes are large, edges regular, fully self-cleaning; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules round; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white; tillering is average.

Introduced by Ty Ty Nursery. Synonyms: C. 'Fay's Orchid', C. 'Fay's Orchid Red', C. 'Jimmy Carter'. This cultivar does bear a strong resemblance to the old heritage specimen C. 'Percy Lancaster', and we will be growing them together this year to establish if they are the same plant.
