(aka: Canna D12-75) Our friends at Yucca Do Nursery discovered this amazing natural North American canna hybrid (Canna glauca x Canna indica) in 2001 along a stream in the northern Mexican mountains. Canna 'Tama-Tulipa' is a giant in the garden, reaching 8' tall for us. Because of the Canna glauca background, it's quite stoloniferous, forming a large 10' wide patch in 3-5 years...especially in rich, moist soils. The glaucous-green leafed clumps are topped in summer with small, but dazzling brilliant red flowers, surrounded by a bright yellow border...very cool!
