(aka: Canna 'Nirvana' or Canna 'Striped Beauty') This old hybrid is still one of the most popular of the variegated cannas today. Canna 'Minerva' makes a 5' tall stalk with brilliant white and green striped leaves. This vigorously multiplying canna is topped off all summer with unique red flower buds that open to large, butter-yellow flowers with a white central stripe down the middle of each petal. When Canna 'Minerva' is fed well and kept moist, it is indeed a fantastic garden plant...a hummingbird fiesta. Canna 'Minerva' was named as one of the top 200 plants of the last 200 years by the Royal Horticultural Society...quite an honor.
