Here are the new and a few old varieties in the love series.

My girlfriend Sarah has been putting this series together for over a year now. She has been picking out the ones she likes the most to add to this group. She is interested to hear what you think of her series.

I'm very happy with the Forbidden Love that I got from you. The color is fairly variable for me. It has attracted a lot of interest from visitors.

I have been trying to work with some nurseries to release new plants. It seems to be a bit of a pain at the moment. I have a few people contacting me now but as far as I see if any of them sign up for this they would be released in the next 1 to 3 years I hope sooner than later.

I like them all together like in the first photo :D The colors are compliment each other nicely. I especially like the contrast in the leaves and flower of Romance too.

short side of a long story. Many years ago. I got moofed on a regular basis. I was in a community I loved and got moofed. Got back online...Moofed, did that so many times I lost count. They said my old name was signed in. But I was not. I could not get back in to community. I hated the new names they tried to pick for me. then I moofed yet again. This time I was mad and thinking MOOFIE POO this...as I do not cuss. Thus the name. I have had alot of fun with it. So now you know.

I have released Canna Romance and Canna forbidden love. I am mainly breeding new forms and not propagating tons so they are rarely seen on the market at the moment. I have been in contact with a few larger companies who are interested in mass production of a few new cannas I have been working on. Hopefully many will be put into production this year. The odd forms and ones that are not picked by the larger companies will still be available but will be much harder to find due to them being only grown by hobbyist and smaller hobbyist nurseries.
