Hanging Out By The Pool With Richard Wallace

Canna 'Richard Wallace'
Canna 'Richard Wallace'

Richard Wallace is a yellow canna with apple green leaves. There are a sprinkling of red dots in the flower's throat. It is a historic canna developed in 1902. It is also a historic canna for me because it was the first canna I brought home in Las Vegas, NV. For a long time, I grew only Richard Wallace and Dawn Pink in large pots next to the swimming pool ladder. Don't be fooled by Richard Wallace's small, brittle rhizomes. He is a vigorous and agressive grower.

Canna 'Richard Wallace' buds are yellow/green.

Lately, I've got a fever and the only prescription is . . . more orange and yellow! Orange Punch is a short canna, so I am growing it in a pot on my patio where I can keep an eye on it. [wink, wink]

Canna 'Orange Punch' is always in bloom.
