Canna ‘Sugar and Spice’ really is “everything nice.” The large, creamy-yellow flowers are slightly ruffled on the edges and sprinkled, with bright pink. Blooms are held just above its broad, bright green leaves and tend to bloom up the stems — creating a beautiful, long-lasting display all summer long. A medium variety, it will reach about 5ft in height.
