Canna ‘Statue of Liberty’
Origin WINTZER Antoine
Canna ‘Statue of Liberty’ is a tall Italian Group cultivar; purple foliage, oval shaped, upright habit; round main stems, coloured purple; flowers are open, self-coloured carmine, staminodes are large, edges irregular, petals purple with farina, fully self-cleaning, blooms open in the early morning; seed is sterile, pollen is low fertile; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured purple; tillering is prolific.
The staminodes are very fine and thin, and when the sun shines through them there are colour transformations. The bloom only lasts for a day or so, but in that time it makes its statement.
