Canna 'Topaz'

A small Premier Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, branching habit; panicles of flowers are cupped, yellow-orange and apricot, staminodes are medium size, edges ruffled, fully self-cleaning, outstanding bloomer; 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 average.

Introduced by Marcelle Sheppard, Texas, USA. I believe that this is one of the great breeding Cannas, producing magnificent offspring that are all under 1 metre (3'3") and with full, round flowers.
