Description

Canna ‘Kreta’ is a small Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, lanceolate shaped, acute apex, upright habit; oval main stems, coloured green; clusters of flowers are open, self-coloured orange-red, staminodes are narrow, fully self-cleaning, average bloomer, flowers in July until frosts in northern temperate zone, blooms open in the early morning; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules subglobose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured purple; tillering is average.

One of the Island Series, in total there are: C. ‘Corsica’, C. ‘Gran Canaria’, C. ‘Kreta’, and C. ‘Madeira’. They were originally propagated as meristem cultures and distributed as small plugs, but apparently Canna does not lend itself easily to that form of culture and they have been removed from widespread commercial production.
