Canna Cannova® - Color Botanica

Canna CANNOVA series

CANNOVA plants make one think of the Mediterranean, subtropical or tropical countries and regions, the beach, warm nights, flowerbeds, the sun, warmth and good times. The Canna 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.

Seed for the CANNOVA series is being produced at various locations. After harvesting, the seed receives a special scarification treatment for better and more uniform germination. Specialised nurseries use these scarified seeds to produce young plants which are then sold to professional growers. The growers then cultivate pre-finished and/or flowering plants which find their way to consumers through wholesale and retail channels.
