Canna 'Safrano'

A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, branching habit; panicles of flowers are open, self-coloured saffron-yellow, staminodes are medium size, edges irregular, fully self-cleaning; 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 prolific.
Introduced by A. Crozy, Lyon, France in 1890.

This plant is so resilient and is tough as old nails. This would always be in my collection, in spite of its age! It's flowering period is impressive, and it just keeps going and going. Just get one is my advice!
