Canna 'Cremora'

A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage; flowers are self-coloured cream, edges irregular, petals yellow, fully self-cleaning, good bloomer; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type. Flowers fade to white after the first day.
Introduced by Mrs Marcelle Sheppard, Orange County, Texas, USA. The breeding is C. ‘Eureka’ x C. ‘Confetti’. Once again, ‘Eureka’ shows itself to be an excellent pod parent. Eureka dates back over one hundred years and deserves its long-term popularity in the garden, as well as its effectiveness in any breeding program.
