Canna 'Margaret Strange'

A medium sized Premier Group cultivar; dark foliage, oval shaped, branching habit; panicles of flowers are open, self-coloured orange-red, staminodes are medium size; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured pink and purple; tillering is average.

Introduced by James Ranger, Wokingham, Berkshire, England, EU, in memory of a member of the local gardening community.

I always think that there is no nicer way for a gardener to be remembered than by having a new cultivar named after them.
