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. "  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Canna 'Mellow Yellow'.
