Description

Canna ‘Italia’ is a medium sized Italian Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, acute apex, upright habit; oval main stems, coloured green; spikes of flowers are open, self-coloured yellow, throat cardinal-red, staminodes are large, edges frilled, labellum is red, stamen is yellow with a wide red margin, style is red, petals red with farina, fully self-cleaning, good bloomer, blooms open in the early morning; seed is sterile, pollen is low fertile; rhizomes are long and thin, coloured white and purple; tillering is average.

Introduced, along with C. ‘Austria’, in 1894 these two new cultivars caused a sensation at that time, producing much larger flowers than the Crozy Group had been capable of producing.  Many people referred to them as doubles, because of the much larger size of the stamen and style of this Italian Group creating a second row of ‘petals’.
