Canna 'Teme'

A small aquatic cultivar, equally at home as a water marginal or in the border; glaucous green foliage, lanceolate shaped, upright habit; round stems, coloured green; panicles of flowers are open, self-coloured ivory, staminodes are narrow, edges regular, petals yellow, fully self-cleaning; fertile both ways, self-pollinating but not true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are long and thin, coloured white; tillering is slow.
Introduced by Malcolm Dalebö, Claines Canna Collection, Worcester, England, EU in 2005. An F1 hybrid cross of Canna indica x Canna glauca
The Claines Canna Aquatics have been bred to populate garden ponds that are just a few metres square, compared with the much larger Longwood Aquatics destined for huge ponds and lakes.
