Canna 'Maudie Malcolm'

A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, spreading habit; round stems, coloured green; flowers are open, self-coloured cerise-pink, throat ivory, staminodes are large, edges frilled, fully self-cleaning; fertile both ways, not known if true to type, not self-pollinating, capsules round; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white and pink.

This cultivar was introduced by Patrick Malcolm of Ty Ty Plantations, in the South of the USA. Many Canna authorities believe this to be the best pink Canna of all.

Said to be a seedling of Canna ‘Rosenkavalier’, the great pink from Wilhelm Pfitzer, one of the Grand Opera Series as marketed by Wayside Gardens.
