Canna 'Montaigne'


A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; bronze foliage, oblong shaped, maroon margin, branching habit; panicles of flowers are open, red with a rose blush, staminodes are medium size, edges irregular, petals purple with farina, partial self-cleaning, outstanding bloomer; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter.

Introduced by H. Cayeux in 1924. Synonym: C. 'Montagne'.

This is a heavy bloomer, even during periods with little direct sunlight. At such times, the weight of the blooms will cause the stem to bend.
