Canna ‘Malvern’

Welcome to Les Cannas de Beslon, collectors of canna varieties and wild species, located in Normandy, France. We have been growing, collecting, photographing, breeding, researching and writing about canna for the last 25+ years.

Canna ‘Tom Thumb’, 2001

Over the decades that we have been breeding cannas, we have registered over 50 new varieties, ranging from Crozy and Premier  Groups to the ever-popular River Series of aquatic cannas, and we have now recommenced our interrupted breeding programme, and several new cultivars have been introduced in the last years.

Canna ‘Ombersley’

Our long-standing policy of culling any plant showing virus symptoms has worked well, and the problem is under control in our virus-aware collection.  

To ensure the safety and health of our plants and livestock, we do not offer any form of visitation as Biosecurity is our top priority.  Thank you for understanding.

Sales of Surplus Stock

Canna ‘Crista’

To help finance what is a private collection, we sell surplus rhizomes each spring. This website has a ‘shop’ where plants can be purchased, but only in small quantities as we are not a canna farm but a private collection attempting to preserve the heritage varieties, as well as the latest commercial fancies.

Sales over the winter and early spring are for green rhizomes, and by the late spring will be satisfied by young growing plants. Note that we do not sell ‘dry’ rhizomes, only fresh rootstock.

We can supply cannas (plants, seeds) to anywhere in the European Union and Northern Ireland, but are no longer selling to the mainland United Kingdom because of the new export/import regulations following Brexit.


  • We cannot supply plants to any country outside of Europe because of Export/Import regulations, but we can supply seeds.
  • If we send plants to countries in Europe, but outside the EU, it is at the customer’s risk.
  • For orders of 6 plants or less we apply a standard post and packing charge of €15.00. No charge is made for larger quantities. 

  • We only despatch orders when the weather forecasts promise no immediate frosts.
