Introduced by Thor Dalebö, Claines Canna Collection, Lower Normandy, France. in 2006.
The Claines Canna Aquatics have been bred to populate garden ponds that are just a few metres square, compared with the much larger Longwood Aquatics destined for huge ponds and lakes.
The breeding is a seedling from Canna ‘Teme’ x self.
