Gardeners' Notes:

The pink pin stripes in the foliage make this plant remarkable and very showy. I grow it b/c of foliage, not flower. It grows to 24" in our garden and it does get sunburned but I don't think any more or less sunburned than other cannas in summertime. I trim it in late Sep and in one month it is full grown and beautiful until the first frost in Dec.

Burns quite easy in full Texas sun , had to move it to partially shaded location at the sacrifice of flowers however it is a beautiful foliage plant also .

I ordered this plant from Aloha Tropicals... Great tubers... sprouted in days and are growing like weeds. I highly recommend this nursery. You get what you pay for. I have tried the cheap source... Royal Dutch..... and my tubers were liquified when I got them. I am still waitinfg for the promised replacements... $75.00 down the drain.

These are beautiful cannas.
