I bought two new var. last spring...tropicanna gold took the longest to start growing...and should have bloomed in mid summer...but didn't set blossom until well into Sept....just in time for frosts....They love heat and sun and I planted them in late day shade...so not their fault...will be a little wiser sighting them next season. The var. Tropicanna...is orange flowered with red stripe in the leaves... I love both var. they are worth the small investment as they are practically care free.

Ahhh..yes Arlene...I have a thing for variegated foliage...love it where ever I find it... also silver foliage... thanks Jacque. these cannas really put on a show...and they can't be beat for eye appeal...especially when used as focal flower/plant or in a border background. They tend to steal the show. so you might want to give them a stage of their own... or plant with callas and acidantheras. They bloom until killing frost ...I dig them and store them..but you might not have to...

I have two of the tropicanna gold in pots in the family room, Gillian. but dug and dried the rhiz. for the red dwarf, and the tropicanna. They blossomed shortly after I brought them in.
