Canna Breeders From Around the World
Many Canna Breeders raised an array of different canna varieties that originated from all over the world.
Most of the old world hybrid cannas originated in France, while Germany and the United States of America produced many different canna plants and some great one's also come from Italy, some of these beautiful tropical plants have also been raised here in Australia.
The French have introduced many great cultivators the first was raised by Monsieur The'odore Ann’ee.
Other plants from French breeders that I grow are from Vilmorin-Andrieux, Jean Sisley, Jean Libaud and not forgetting the famous Antoine Crozy who raised the beautiful old world famous canna Madame Crozy along with many other varieties of Crozy Cannas.
Raised by Mr. Caitlin was the Canna Star of 1891.
The Dingee and Conard Co of Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA raised the Canna Flamingo.
Here in Australia one of the earliest canna breeders that I found was Maurice William Holtze of Adelaide, research reveals Australia's first cannas were raised by him, he raised some magnificent exotic plants in 1902 and 1903.
Another Australian hybridizing these tropical plants before 1925 was Colonel J. W. B. Field of Casterton in Victoria.
Today cannas in Australia are still a very popular choice as cottage garden flowers.
