Canna altensteinii

200 (280)cm, an ornamental, very tall species with large leaves and terminal racemes with orange flowers. By some authors it is regarded a member of the Canna indica complex, however, Canna altensteinii is clearly distinct. It grows much taller in all aspects and its overall habit is more similar to the Giant Canna (Canna tuerckheimii), whereas seeds are significantly larger than in Canna indica. Easily grown in humus rich soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter keep plants at a minimum of some 15°C and reduce watering to a minimum. At lower temperatures plants will go dormant and the rootstock will stay dormant during the cold season. Real Canna altensteinii is rarely offered in the garden trade and what is sold as such is mostly an orange flowering form from Canna indica. Our plants are true-to-type. VII-X.
