Canna 'Futurity Red'icon

'Futurity' Series Cannas

Canna 'Futurity Red'icon 

'Futurity' series cannas are not only compact, but bear the wonderful innovation of self-cleaning. Spent flowers fall softly to the ground as new flowers develop, eliminating the chore of dead-heading as was previously necessary with cannas in order to maintain a pristine display.

This new hybrid is claimed to be trouble-free, while Florida gardeners struggling with poorly drained or moist sites will be pleased with cannas, provided snails are not a problem.
