Originated at the Agri Horticultural Society of India, Bengal in the 1960s. It was later transported to the African continent, by Sydney Percy-Lancaster, the Secretary of the Society, when he retired to Rhodesia; hence the synonym of C. 'Pretoria' when it was discovered by US plant collectors in South Africa in the late 1960s. Also imported to the USA from India in 1963 by Glasshouse Works.

In 2002, granted the 'Award of Garden Merit' (AGM) in the Canna outdoor trials held at RHS Wisley, under the synonym of Canna 'Striata'
