Canna 'Creamy White'

A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, branching habit; triangular stems, coloured green; spikes of flowers are open, cream with a pale yellow blush, staminodes are large, edges serrated, labellum is cream heavily spotted with orange-red, stamen is light-cream heavily spotted with orange-red, not self-cleaning, good bloomer; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white; tillering is slow.
Suffers badly in poor light conditions, becoming unable to unfurl it new leaves. These "stuck" leaves must be assisted to unfurl, otherwise bud rot has a high chance of getting established.
Synonym: C. 'Creamy-White'
