Canna edulis stalk color

(1/1)

Pokeweed:
I have been growing these for a few years. I also have ornamental cannas in the yard. The original edulis have red stalks. I've collected their seed and propagated them. I now have cannas that have green stalks like the ornamental ones growing in some of the pots. Could these be edulis, just with green stalks or maybe a hybrid? Should they still be edible? Thanks! D

Vegan Potato Man:
Green stalk canna edulis is fairly common

They're usually propagated vegetatively

Pokeweed:
Thank for the input. The ornamental ones that are naturalized in the yard have yellow flowers and the edulis have smaller red flowers. Should I assume any with yellow flowers are inedible? D

As far as I know, they should still be edible regardless. It isn't like cassava where the new seedlings can be much more toxic.

Thanks! D
