Canna Yellow Bird a superb seed raised hybrid by Jungleseeds is a cross of Orange Punch and Richard Wallace. The result is a slightly taller plant than Orange Punch with large open deep yellow spotted flowers held in large sprays rather than upright. This species habit is derived from its Inridiflora genes obtained through Orange Punch. The flowers are self dead heading but needs a sheltered spot to help prevent older flowers dropping too early. Deep green strong foliage.

Yacon rhizomes

1 Rhizome

Yacon is a non-frost hardy South American herbaceous perennial related to the Sunflower and grows rapidly to around 6ft tall with small yellow flowers. The delicious tubers the size of large potatoes are produced at the end of the growing season and have a crunchy crispness with a taste between sweet watermelon and an apple when eaten raw but can also be steamed or roasted. Yacon produces two types of underground tubers, the smaller ones clustered around the base of the stem can be eaten when young but are mainly used for propagation and these are the ones we supply. The large edible tubers contain a high proportion of inulin promoting a healthy gut and often used as a non fattening sugar alternative.
