I took a small clipping from a friend, and within 4 weeks it went from 1 ft to 4 ft and blooming like crazy! Gorgeous full yellow flowers with red speckles.The flowers bloom one or two at a time then fall off quickly..many more are still coming..It has very dark green round shaped leaves. At first I thought it was a Gladiola type flower. I dont think so now. Then I thought Lily. Any one out there have a clue? I live in south florida and this plant is thriving outside in my patio.
Can anyone identify this plant?
I have one just like it which bloomed wonderfully all summer --actually just bloomed a couple weeks ago here in Washington DC.
I think it's a canna.
Yeah, its Canna. There are a few other colours you should also try growing. It also comes in a dwarf variety too which is much shorter (max, about 3 - 4 feet). I loves full sun and lots of water. We grow them out doors in full sun in out very hot humid Malaysian climate.
Aloha deegreen and Tecialiu, so glad you joined us on TZG!
Looks like a Canna I have, but I thought mine was called Cleopatra....
