Canna x generalis 'Red Futurity'
Red Futurity Canna Lily
Item #: 11643
Zones: 7b to 10b
Height: 54" tall
Canna 'Red Futurity', from our friend and former canna breeder Kent Kelly, has been a standout in our canna trials. The 4' tall purple stalks are clothed with 18" long, dark purple leaves. During the summer months, the clumps are topped with stalks of brilliant red flowers that rise 6" above the foliage. Rich, moist soils are needed to achieve the full height.
