Canna ‘Wyoming’

  • Our earliest reference to this specimen is RHS Journal of 1907-8.
  • The registration of this cultivar was confirmed in the Massachusetts Horticultural Society publication, called Horticulture, 1915. Vol.22. p.851. Dec.25 and shows that the introducer was Antoine Wintzer of The Conard & Jones Co., West Grove, PA, USA. There has been confusion for many years, with many insisting that Luther Burbank introduced the cultivar, but there is no evidence to show his interest in cannas went beyond his documented introductions of C. ‘Burbank’, and C. ‘Tarrytown’.
  • Awards: 2002 Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in the RHS outdoor trials at Wisley, England.
  • Synonyms: C. Biarritz, C. Emerald Sunset, C. G.V. King, C. Glow of Love, C. Liberté, C. Professor Lorentz, C. Professor Lorenz, C. Stellar Blut
