Ian Cooke, The Gardeners Guide to Growing Cannas
(M) This distinct Canna has small, yellow flowers with tiny red dots. The overriding effect is quite delicate. It is worth growing in a collection but not a stunner.
Very large dark yellow blooms (mid to late season) on robust green

foliage. To around 4 feet in height.

Summary: Even Kent Kelly who raised this specimen acknowledges that it is not an early season star. It gives its first blooms quite late in the season, and they an interesting but unexceptional small yellow bloom with tiny red dots. A must for any collection, but not a border star. Useful as a reliable border backdrop with exotic foliage.
Size: Medium
Flower: Small yellow blooms with small red spots, flowering late in the season.
Foliage: Robust green foliage.
Origin: Raised by Kent Kelly, Quality Gladiolus, USA
