People, even experienced canna [people, often have difficulty discerning the differences between the noble Italia, and the the two later introduction, Bavaria and Burgundia. There are four basic areas that can be quickly learned to allow you to identify accurately, namely the height, flower colour markings and flower form.
|1.5 – 2 m,||Smaller at 1 metre|
|Foliage||Smaller and narrower than in the better-known Italia, Austria and Burbank.|
|Markings||More solid red at the centre, so that it becomes a yellow-bordered flower, of similar marking to Queen Charlotte;||More spotted with a predominance of yellow|
|Petals||Notch at the base of the labellum.||Usually has upright petals, although the labellum (lip) always droops slightly..||Commonly shows its Canna flaccida parentage in reflexed petals.|
