Canna News - 12 NOVEMBER 2010
Introduced by Thor Dalebö, Claines Canna Collection, Worcester, England, EU in 2006. This is another member of our “back to basics” experiment, where we replicated the species crosses made in the 1840’s and onwards to see what we could produce. The achievement with this second generation cross was producing flowers with petals (staminodes) much larger than the species. This cultivar remains part of our breeding programme and will be crossed with more species to capture more of the basics, but also will be crossed with modern Premier Group cultivars to understand what such a cross will produce.
