LOL...They are really bright, aren't they...they took so long to send up blossom that I was concerned that they would be blooming in time for first frost...I have a green white and yellow leafed canna but they have done nothing...the cold spell this spring seemed to set them back and they've been really slow to recover... Not quite tropics, Marguerite...and not quite Toronto either...I'm closer to Montreal at about the 45th parallel of latitude.... five hours from TO by freeway. But when the Cannas are blooming it can look like Hawaii!!

These are such an exotic sizzling colour. Ours are doing very well this year Lori, -probably due to all the rain we are having, but we are giving them lots of food as well. Several are in excess of 7 feet high this year!

I really must get some of the taller cannas... the red I have was labelled 'dwarf canna'... they are taller than I am and they are dwarf???
LOL... Nice to know that something liked all that rain. It has been quite wet here too...but the garden is loving it! There is nothing more heartbreaking that a dry thirsty garden!
