Aloha

Canna ‘Aloha’
(Crozy Group)

ORIGIN ARMSTRONG Robert, 1990
PARENTAGE C. Lenape x
FLOWER Orange-red
FOLIAGE Green
FORM Upright

A Crozy Group cultivar; dark green foliage, narrow red rim; large flowers are orange-red with yellow spots, blooms open in the early morning; fertility both ways; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter.

Daves Garden describes it as ‘A lovely little true dwarf canna with deep green leaves rimmed in red. Flower is a larger type and a hot flamingo orange. The whole plant just sort of glows.’

The KAVB registration confirms that its main flower colour is orange-scarlet (RHS 32A-C), and the leaf is green with a narrow red margin. It is a cross with C. Lenape, and it first flowered in 1990, and is a good example of a dwarf Canna. ‘Aloha’ is one in the pair of the final cannas to come out of the Longwood Gardens introductions under Robert Armstrong, the other being C. Pele.
