Canna Cannova®

Canna Cannova

Canna CANNOVA plants make one think of Mediterranean, subtropical or tropical countries and regions, the beach, warm nights, flowerbeds, the sun, warmth and good times. The CANNOVA series, with its outstanding garden performance and profuse flowering until the first frost, adds a tropical touch to any outdoor space, whether it’s a cool or warm Summer.

The Canna F1-Hybrids CANNOVA series was bred from the species Canna x generalis. Traditional plant breeding methods were applied to develop the CANNOVA series with the aim of producing varieties that could be used not only in subtropical and tropical climates where cannas originally evolved, but also in cooler summer climates.

Key features:

  • From the time that CANNOVA starts to bloom (April), it continues to flower until the first frost
  • Next to (sub)tropical climates, Canna CANNOVA thrives very well in cooler summer climates
  • Dynamic, strong, long-lasting and great branching; Canna CANNOVA is an excellent performer
  • Canna CANNOVA is suitable for open soil, balcony- and patio pots and mixed containers

Adding value

We were not satisfied with the results we were achieving with an acid treatment used to improve germination on our Canna seed. We were vigorously investigating other options and as a result invented a patented process using a laser. This original technology uses the precision of a laser to make two holes on the hard surface of the seed. These holes allow the seed to absorb water more easily, leading to improved germination rates. Innovation is central to our mission to keep creating excellent, high value products that will benefit our customers.

Volmary was responsible for supplying this enormous number of young plants to the Vienna city nursery. Takii and Volmary visited Vienna to take a look at the world of this unusual order.
