I dont see how Pistol Pete differs from 'Lucifer' another Canna x generalis cross.

Pistol Pete's beautiful bi-colored blooms will add brilliant tropical color to your landscape. Bold, bright red blooms outlined in a halo of gold coloring. Foliage is apple green and growing up to 4 ft. tall. Great planted near an outdoor water garden or for a dramatic backdrop for other plantings.
