Description

Canna ‘Taney’ is a medium-sized aquatic cultivar, equally at home as a water marginal or in the border; glaucous green foliage, lanceolate shaped, acuminate apex, upright habit; flowers are open, self-coloured orange, staminodes are narrow, edges regular, petals red with farina, fully self-cleaning, good bloomer, flowers in August until frosts in northern temperate zone, blooms open in the early morning; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are long and thin, coloured white and pink; tillering is slow.

Supposedly named after a ship. However, infamously in 1857 and just two days after the inauguration of US President James Buchanan, Chief Justice Roger B. Taney wrote “Negroes had no rights which any white man was bound to respect.”
