Zingy orange, flamboyant flowers are a wonderful thing, but it’s the large, technicolour-striped foliage of Canna 'Durban' which really sets it apart from the rest. Plant this vibrant variety in a sunny spot and the pink in the leaves with glow enthusiastically with such aplomb! Enjoy the foliage spectacular all summer long, followed by a bright display of blooms from late summer onwards.

Small space? No problem! 'Durban' cannas are tall and slim, so they can fit neatly into quite a tight space and create a really impressive look. They’re ideal for planting in groups in the border and look especially good when combined with bright showy dahlias. Easy-to-grow varieties as showy as this are a real treasure that will just keep on giving for months on end!

Gracy tells: Look at the leaves!
"Canna leaves are bold and famous for their tropical look. Most Canna Lily cultivars have rich emerald-green leaves, but some (like Canna 'Durban') have distinctive variegated leaves!"
