I just want to tell additional about Canna. Its very household flower here in India. In rural areas women use to pin them with their traditional hairstyle. Its a common flower for offering to temple prayers. Currently flowering season is on peak and lasts till September.

I've seen this growing in Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC, Canada. Beautiful flower, seems like it would be related to gladiolas or maybe freesia.
