DescriptionThis dwarf canna variety is seldom seen.
Vanilla Cream serves up dreamy white to pale yellow flowers in abundance during the midsummer season and lasting until the first frosts. The strong, 24" stems stay upright, and lush, banana-like leaves make a pretty picture even when the plants are not in bloom. For best results, place them in full-sun borders or containers in soil that has plenty of moisture.
