Canna 'Stadt Fellbach'

A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, branching habit; panicles of flowers are open, self-coloured apricot, staminodes are large, outstanding bloomer; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type.
Introduced by the venerable old house of W. Pfitzer, Stadt Felbach, Stuttgart, Germany, EU in 1934. In 1933, there were about 150 Wilhelm Pfitzer employees worldwide. That same year, in order to celebrate the elevation of Fellbach to the status of a city, the firm named one of its best seedlings that year as Canna ‘Stadt Fellbach’, meaning ‘City of Fellbach’.
Synonym: C. 'Pfitzer’s Stadt Fellbach'
