Canna break through - Canna 'Vilamoura'

After many years of attempting to create a cultivar with 5 petals, instead of the normal 4 petals, Malcolm Dalebö of Claines Canna has achieved his goal.

A new Canna cultivar called Canna 'Vilamoura' has been registered with the KAVB and Malcolm hopes that this cultivar will become the foundation for many more cultivars sharing this new 5 petal attribute. Already crosses have been made with several other cultivars that can provide different colourings and foliage attributes and time will tell how successful these crosses will be.
