Canna 'Mellow Yellow' (Dwarf Yellow Canna) - An attractive cultivar growing to only 2-3 feet tall with large clear yellow flowers in summer-fall. Plant in full sun. Loves heat and regular irrigation. Frost hardy to 0 degrees F if given deep mulch. We like this great smaller canna and have been growing it since 1996 since getting it from canna breeder Herb Kelly who says of this canna "A very nice small canna, growing to 2 to 3 feet tall with large clear yellow flowers. "  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Canna 'Mellow Yellow'.
