Canna ‘Red King Humbert’

Red King Humbert’ is a splendid, especially tall canna, reaching heights up to 6 feet. They are especially desirable for their distinctive foliage, which slowly turns from green to an exotic, reddish-bronze. The flowers range from bright red to reddish orange, and bloom in mid-to-late summer. ‘Red King Humbert’ Cannas are showy tropical flowers. They are at home in any tropical garden, but are especially striking when used in unexpected ways, such as a focal point in an urban garden. This Canna is also marvelous in water gardens!

Cannas bring a touch of the tropics to wherever they are planted. These exotic looking plants are indispensable for a splendid summer border bursting with drama. Their size, bright, showy flowers and foliage patterns ensure that your Cannas will stand out. Makes a great centerpiece in bedding schemes and large containers. As soon as a stalk has finished blooming, remove it and a new one will take its place. If faded flowers are not removed, seeds will form and flowering will cease.
