The property I live on has been in our family close to 120 years. We had a red blooming canna with bronze foliage, probably a ‘Roi Humbert’ or ‘Red King Humbert’ but it eventually disappeared.
For as long as I can remember, these striking orange and yellow spotted cannas have been thriving on the property. They are variously known as Florence Vaughan, Yellow King Humbert or Mme. Crozy cannas and date back to the 1893 World’s Fair according to Old House Gardens.
