Hanging Out By The Pool With 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.
