Canna, Semi-Dwarf ‘Pretoria’

Between the melon-orange, torch-like blooms and the tropical, variegated foliage, ‘Pretoria’ creates quite a color spectacle! This canna is a medium height plant with gorgeous, orange flowers displayed on a reddish orange stem. Striking banana-like, zebra-striped foliage features creamy yellow and green bands throughout the growing season. This magnificent, large foliage is also decorated with a subtle red-pencil edging making this canna most unusual and sought after.

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.
