Have you posted on the Exchanges page?

Also, you might have better luck with rhizomes:
seeds don't always "come true" to the parent type.

Best luck!

Hi:

I have around 75 seed of a dwarf canna, but I've lost the name. As I recall it is a yellow with spots or maybe yellow and red.

I'm looking to exchange for other varieties of dwarf canna seed.

Happy Canna Growing To All

The only variagated canna that produces seed is Pink Sunburst and its progeny are not variegated, probably because it is a chimera.

Is that why tropicanna is so expensive in stores?

Troicanna won't grow from seed.

I'm still kicking myself for not dropping the $12 bucks Home Depot wanted for a tropicanna plant. I could have had that darn thing growing all season and next spring I would have had three times as many.....

Good luck Wiley, hope you get the seeds you want.
