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.  This description is based on research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others 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 'Durban'.
