If you're partial to plants with great big blooms that are ruffled, specked and visible from across the yard, Yellow King Humbert is your kind of canna. This is a medium height variety, typically gowing to 4-5 feet. The oversized, extra wide petaled blooms are a lively mix of butter yellow and orange. The foliage is a medium green. Yellow King Humbert is an heirloom variety that still stands with the best and is sought out for dependability. In classic canna fashion, The King loves heat and humidity.
Tall cannas tend to look best when planted in groups of three or more. Shorter varieties work well in mixed planters, shining as the central plant surrounded by shorter partners with fluffy or strappy foliage profiles.
