Spotted Canna "lillian cole" in my garden. Cannas are a rhizomatous tender perennial with attractive green, bronze, bronzy orange, rich scarlet, purple or striped foliage that come as dwarf, medium and tall plants. Cannas come in a wide range flower colours from pale cream, lemon, apricot-pink, white and gold to vivid yellow, orange, red, scarlet and deep crimson. The flowers may be fringed, striped or self-coloured.


In subtropical or warm temperate areas cannas will flower for most of the year. Cannas x generalize is the name given to the many cannas x hybrid cultivars available
