|As we all know, C. 'Tropicanna' is a registered commercial name.
It's origins are in Africa & was originally known as C. 'Phasion'.
Other names it is known as are: C. Andaloucia’, C. Durban [Europe], C. Franciscus, C. Gold Ader, C. Inferno, C. Tiger Stripe, C. Tropicana, C. Tropicanna.
Serious canna collectors refer to this canna by it's original name of 'Phasion' .. they are not different cannas, but the same .. they do not produce any viable seeds, being infertile, & the ONLY way to grow this canna is by rhizome divisions.

|Welcome to ATP FleudeLisCanna.
I really like this kind of information. I'm supposed to be growing this cultivar. At least it was tagged as C. Tropicanna and more or less looks the same. The foliage on mine has tended to become more burgundy with a lot less color striping under my cultivation practice. Infertility in plants is often the result of a hybrid plant with two distinct parents of similar species. If the origins were in Africa, do you know what those parents were if that is the case here?
