Takii Breeds the First Seed Hybrid Canna
Canna F1 South Pacific Scarlet is the first hybrid Canna from seed and a 2013 AAS award winner . Being from seed, South Pacific Scarlet is not prone to diseases often transmitted in rhizome propogation. South Pacific Scarlet’s hybrid vigor allows it to fill a pot faster, bloom sooner and more prolifically. The vibrant scarlet of the large flowers creates a dramatic and tropical feel. Use this striking beauty in planters, mixed containers, gardens, landscapes and in shallow areas of water features.

Another AAS Award Winner for Takii in 2012!
Takii has bred another AAS winner! Salvia Summer Jewel Pink was judged to be an AAS winner and joins Summer Jewel Red which earned an AAS award in 2011. This series offers gardeners an early-blooming, compact Salvia coccinea. Summer Jewel blooms in approximately 7 to 9 weeks from sowing, about 3 weeks earlier than Lady in Red, a previous AAS winner also available from Takii. Heavily branching, the Summer Jewel series produces an abundance of flower spikes that are loaded with densely packed flowers. The flowers are long lasting, and the plants are full, compact, long blooming and heat tolerant. The inspiration for the name Summer Jewel came from the hummingbirds that are attracted to these brilliantly colored blooms.
Takii Launches the Petunia F1 Trilogy Series
Petunia F1 Trilogy has been bred to help the grower, the retailer and the consumer. By focusing on performance in every stage, Takii delivers a product that requires less growth regulators, lasts longer on the retailer shelf display and performs in the garden with minimal care. The Trilogy series features uniformity across all colors, a controlled habit resulting in less tangling and breakage, and it has less daylength sensitivity. It has a unique dome shape, with a height of 12 to 15 inches, and a spread of 30 to 36 inches. Available in 7 colors.
Takii Seed Receives 2010 Industry Achievement Award and Editor’s Choice Award from Greenhouse Grower
American Takii proudly accepted Greenhouse Grower’s Medal of Excellence for Industry Achievement award and Editor’s Choice award for Canna Tropical Bronze Scarlet. The Medal of Excellence for Industry Achievement came during Takii & Company, Limited’s 175th anniversary year. Takii’s breeding program has achieved many “firsts” over the years including the world’s first hybrid tomatoes, celery, cabbage, broccoli, turnip, daikon and eggplant.
We’re very pleased that Canna Tropical Bronze Scarlet has been recognized by Greenhouse Grower with its Editor’s Choice Award. The Canna Tropical series is the first canna from seed, and the newest addition to the series introduced in 2010 is Bronze Scarlet, the first bronze leaf canna from seed. While most cannas are tall, Tropical is bred to be genetically dwarf, achieving a height of 3 to 4 feet in a growing season. The series thrives in heat and high humidity, so much so that it is used extensively in the landscape at Walt Disney World.
