Grown from seeds given to me by my friend and DG buddyTrackinsand. I don't typically grow anything from seed but this plant is easy beyond neglect, intended or not. The orange with yellow eye coloring can be seen from any distance. Considered a dwarf at 3 ft tall.

a great, self-cleaning (self deadheads) canna that doesn't get too big for a smaller garden. a real punch of color that continues from spring until frost here in florida. not too terribly bad with canna leaf rollers either. when i had one plant, i saw no problems but i purchased a few more plants and i guess the moths were more attracted. still, a little Bt takes care of them and it's well worth the trouble to spray for such a nice garden plant.

Tropical orange flowers on solid green foliage really brightens up any area. Blooms appear in May and last until September. Not very finicky at all.
