Who wouldn't want to decorate their garden or bed with extraordinary bright yellow flowers? Anyone who sees Richard Wallace canna will probably never pass it by. Already in July it opens up unusual bells at the top of a dense green flower stalk. A few delicate petals will grow into a flower which measures ca. 5-10cm. One flower stalk may contain 3 to 7 bells. A beautiful feature is also the long yellow stamens, which reach into the middle of the flower. Its blossom duration will be the envy of Richard Wallace canna: The last flowers fade in September and the thickly veined dark green leaves will last until the cold weather arrives.
Protect it from wind and frost. During the active period, it prefers sunny locations with loose soil and moderate watering. For the winter, dig up the rhizomes and store them in a cool place without getting rid of any soil left on the flower. Return the plant to the ground in the warm spring when frost has passed.
