Canna, Semi-Dwarf 'Richard Wallace'

The 'Richard Wallace' Canna has lovely sunshine yellow flowers. The buttery yellow blooms have light spotting in orangey-red, making this one of the most popular yellow cannas. Light up a corner of your garden with this ray of sunshine.

Cannas bring a touch of the tropics to wherever they are planted. These exotic looking plants are indispensable for a splendid summer border bursting with drama. Their size, bright, showy flowers, and foliage patterns ensure that your Cannas will stand out. Makes a great centerpiece in bedding schemes and large containers.
