Canna, Yellow King Humbert is rated 1.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Sprouted I gave this plant more than the time recommended to see growth and it never happened. I had high hopes for this, but when I dug it up, it seemed to have rotted. A weed which I thought might be the bulb thrived. It is hard to tell why this didn't sprout. I would recommend it with caution. Burpee was great at refunding my money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannas I ordered these in March. Our last frost is around April 26th, these arrived at Memorial Day and put in the ground asap. I kept them watered but they never came up. Not 1 of them. When I planted them they were pretty light, not a firm bulb like my other cannas. I just dug them all up & they are dead. None of them even have a root system at all on them. Here is a photo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bulbs arrived as scheduled. 6-28-2017 So far these bulbs have not sprouted to the surface. My red and orange bulbs are up about 10-12". I am being patient as I know these are young and very small bulbs. Will have to wait to see if I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disapointed I purchased these well ahead of the planting season and Burpee did not send them until the proper time for planting in my area. I think this was a good idea on their part. I planted them three days after receiving them along with my other Canna lilies that I dig up every fall and plant every spring for 25 years. My other Canna's came up as they do every year but these yellow Canna's did not come up at all. None of them. Perhaps something happened in shipping that damaged them, like a cold night in the back of a mail truck. I may try another order next year because I really would like to add some additional colors to my garden and have received good plant and seed products from Burpee before.
