Canna 'Durban' - An outrageously colorful plant to 4-7 feet tall. The new foliage emerges with dark red stripes highlighted with pink, bronze, and pale yellow striping and ages to a bronze-green with yellow stripes. The large orange-red flowers are an added bonus. This plant is a show stopper. In England and Europe this plant is sometimes called 'Red Durban' to distinquish it from another plant that they call Durban, which, in the United States, goes by the name 'Phasion' and is a patented variety (Tropicanna PP10,569). We grew this plant from 1995 until 2005 when it was diagnosed as having canna yellow mottle virus (CaYMV). We only continued to grow Canna varieties that were determined to not be infected nor susceptible to this virus.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of this plant in our nursery crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We also will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Canna 'Durban'.
