Canna x 'Tama-Tulipa'

Natural hybrid! In 2001, we spotted this Canna growing along a small stream where the coastal plains meet the foothills to the high Sierras. We thought that we had found a new species. So, upon our return, we contacted Nobuyuki Tanaka of the Makino Botanical Garden Herbarium in Kochi, Japan. He is a canna expert and he reported that it was most likely a naturally occurring hybrid between Canna glauca and Canna indica. This made sense because we were geographically centered between the ranges of the two species. The Canna glauca blood is much appreciated for its resistance to damage caused by the Canna leaf roller. (The leaves of C. glauca are so tough that the larva prefer to go elsewhere, probably to your neighbor's new hybrids!) Being offer here are bare root divisions off of our mother plants. They will not be potted plants as they have been previously.
